The Cultural Anthropology faculty at Colorado State is energetic, talented and committed to active research, excellent teaching, and community outreach. The five cultural anthropologists at CSU offer students concentrated expertise in the study of international development, health and well-being, globalization, and field research methods. The research programs of our cultural faculty are clustered in postcolonial societies of the Americas, including Native North America, and the Caribbean, East Africa, India and Southeast Asia, Vietnam and the Philippines.
With a clear research focus on the cultural impacts of globalization, our faculty offers a coherent and high-impact course of study for both undergraduate and graduate students. Other related areas of specialization include human ecology, gender, religion, indigenous knowledge, culture and natural disasters, community development and expressive culture.
