Our faculty conducts research that contributes to the production of knowledge in areas associated with the department’s two graduate programs and their own disciplinary subfields. Faculty connected to the graduate program in Energy and Environmental Policy generally conduct research in support of societal decisions involving environmental- and energy-policy goals, strategies, and programs. Faculty connected to the graduate program in Industrial Archaeology and Heritage examine social change in industrial communities through the lens of material culture. Faculty members also carry on disciplinary research in the areas of anthropology, history, political science, and sociology and geography.
