“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. Jeffrey Snodgrass, Professor in the Department of Anthropology, is the editor of a new series, Bioculturalism, for the collaborative blog, Somatosphere. “This series aims to get anthropologists and closely-related others talking seriously, and thinking practically, about how to synergize biological and social scientific approaches to human health and well-being, and to what positive ends.”
The first article in the series, “Bioculturalism: The Why and How of a Promising Medical Anthropological Future,” features Bill Dressler’s response to questions posted by Dr. Snodgrass.
Please join Dr. Kate Browne and Dr. Lori Peek for the launch of their books and a musical tribute to New Orleans on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Help celebrate the resilience and courage of people who lost everything and whose lives are documented in these books.
