DU Anthropology in the Spotlight

Our faculty, graduate students and undergraduates are dedicated to publicly-engaged anthropology. We invite the DU and Denver communities to join us in exploring the field through exhibitions, performances, research presentations, collaborative publications and more.

Research in the Department of Anthropology

Our research spans the classroom, lab, museum, gallery and field, connecting students to faculty in hands-on, experiential learning. We focus on human rights and identities; environment, landscape, and place; material and expressive culture; creative cultural practice; and technology and society.

Our research practices are analytical, while also serving the public good through activism and advocacy. We take our work into the community through traditional publications, as well as exhibitions, blogs, video, performances and other expressive forms.
