General Description / Special Programs

We are committed to an integrative and comparative approach that draws on the rich tradition of the four-fields while also bringing the methods and insights of our evolving discipline to issues of critical importance to today's globalizing and relocalizing societies. We emphasize qualitative methodology, including knowledge of the uses and limitations of standard methods, visual analysis and the production of visual representations through photography and video, participatory research, and public ethnography. We have a focus on the emergent field of climate/energy anthropology and community economies. We also emphasize a strong ethical component in the study of humans and in the relationship between theory and method.
