One of the world’s premiere natural history museums, The Field Museum’s charter of 1893 dedicates its mission to the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge and objects illustrating Art, Archaeology, Science, and History. The Department of Anthropology was central to its founding and grew out of the collections and anthropological staff from the World’s Columbian Exposition. Today, Anthropology is housed in the museum’s Collections and Research Centers, and its faculty steward collections and conduct research on the rise of urbanism, as well as economic, environmental, and political anthropology, global heritage, and social resilience.
