Activism. Research. Social Change.

Anthropology and Social Change is a small, innovative graduate department with a particular focus on activist scholarship, militant research, and social change. We offer both master's and doctorate degrees. Our unique approach to ethnographic research methodology dissolves traditional barriers between research and political activism, between insiders and outsiders, and between researchers and protagonists. Ethnography is a tool for "creating the conditions we describe." We engage in the process of co-research to explore existing alternatives and possibilities for social change.

Alongside talented faculty, MA and PhD students learn how to apply the practice of direct action to the research process. We set out to create the conditions we describe when our research begins to embody the values of the world we want to create.
