“Anthropology is the most humanistic of the sciences and the most scientific of the humanities” – Alfred L. Kroeber

The Department of Anthropology houses a diverse faculty that includes cultural anthropologists, archaeologists, biological anthropologists, and geographers whose scholarship spans the breadth of human experience. The discipline of anthropology is concerned with the human condition as well as the structure of the social, environmental, political and economic contexts within which humans operate. Thus, anthropology is both varied and integrative, drawing from geography, biology, humanities, and other social and natural sciences. The anthropology and geography faculty at CSU conduct research from all over the world.

DR. GALVIN GAVE TALK TO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IN RWANDA

The Africa Center, directed by Dr. Kathleen Galvin, Professor in the Department of Anthropology at CSU, participated in the newly-signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the government of Rwanda for a Smart Village Minigrid.  The purpose of the minigrid is to provide electricity to 70% of the Rwandan population by 2018, compared to 20% of the current population’s access to the central electricity grid, and will advance a Rural Village Development Program in Rwandan subsistence villages.  In January 2016, Dr. Galvin traveled to Africa so that she could talk to Rwandan government officials about the project.
