Birmingham is an ideal location for a variety of anthropologically relevant lines of research, and at the UAB Department of History and Anthropology, we have professors that specialize in forensics, primatology, linguistics, archaeology, ethnography, animal bone identification, satellite remote-sensing, film-making and many other exciting and academically valuable areas. Additionally, they have studied in Mesoamerica (Mexico), Indonesia (Borneo, Java and Bali), Africa (Egypt), South America (Brazil) and the Central Pacific (Fiji), and hope to expand those areas of research in the future.
Professionals conducting research at several local archaeological sites are always looking for student and community volunteers, and conferences and other enrichment activities in every subfield of anthropology are available year-round. We have the resources and opportunities. All we have to do is organize and get out there!
These are some of the topics we're encouraging people to discuss online, and to bring to future meetings:
