UVic Anthropology engages with the discipline's traditional breadth of perspectives and subjects with a commitment to forging meaningful connections between subfields of Biological, Cultural, and Archaeological Anthropology. We accomplish this through integrative themes that inform our teaching and research: Inequality, Culture, Health; Evolution and Ecology; Space, Place, Knowledge and Power; and Visual Anthropology and Materiality. Departmental faculty and students are engaged in community-based research projects locally, regionally and internationally. The department values a skills-based approach to training supported by field schools in archaeological field techniques and visual anthropology.
