Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology at the College of William & Mary offers strong programs in undergraduate and graduate studies. Our faculty and focus reach around the world, fostering an interdisciplinary culture, with long-standing links to American Studies, History, Music, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. We offer course work in all four subfields of anthropology and in all the major geographic areas of the world. Recently, the Department began participating in a new minor in Native Studies.  In addition, the College has approved a new program in Asian and Pacific Islander American Studies (APIA), which may be of interest to Anthropology students -- see this news article for more information.

The Department of Anthropology at William & Mary is pleased to invite nominations for the second Vinson Sutlive Book Prize in Historical Anthropology. The prize goes to the best book published in the prior year, in any discipline, that makes use of anthropological perspectives in order to examine historical contexts and/or the role of the past in the present.

Nominated books must be published in English during 2017. Anyone may nominate a book. Nominations should be accompanied by a nominating letter; send the letter no later than June 1, 2018 directly to each of the Sutlive book prize jurors listed below.
