Race, Ethnicity, and Collective Identity

Distinctions and differences between “kinds” of people have always been central to social and political life; today, differences styled “ethnic”, “cultural”, “religious” or “racial” are at the heart both of systems of oppression, and of struggles for rights, autonomy, and dignity around the world. A large number of the Department’s faculty contribute to the anthropological understanding of these issues.
