Diversity in Anthropology

Our Commitment

In line with discussions at the national level by the American Anthropological Association, we recognize that race, gender, class, religion, disability, language, and sexuality matter in all of the sub-disciplines of anthropology, not simply as topics of study, but in terms of the politics of scholarly practice.

As a discipline that has grappled with serious critique of its connections to racial and colonial formations, we believe that we have an important responsibility to develop “best practices”, in our graduate curriculum and our disciplinary philosophy, that serve and value all our students.
