Socio-Cultural Faculty


Socio-cultural faculty conduct research and publish on a diverse array of topics throughout the world. The issues we explore are relevant for contemporary times, but also delve into historic context in order to illuminate today’s issues.

The sociocultural faculty are also active in interdisciplinary programs, including: the Ph.D. Program in Anthropology and History, the joint Ph.D. programs in Anthropology and Social Work, the Medical Anthropology M.D./Ph.D. program, as well as with the university’s programs in Science and Technology Studies (STS), and Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG).

Because of our global expertise, our faculty are active in the university’s AREA CENTERS, including the African Studies Center (ASC), The Center for East European, Eurasian & Russian Studies (CREES), Center for European Studies (CES), Latin American & Caribbean Studies (LACS), Center for South Asian Studies (CSAS), Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS), Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), and the centers for Japanese Studies (CJS), Korean Studies (NCKS) and Chinese Studies (LRCCS).
