Our faculty are nationally and internationally recognized for their diverse practices, which engage complex territories on the environment, race, politics, material culture, science, and the human condition. Thwarting conventional silos, many work across disciplines and collaborate with practitioners in other fields. Several Sam Fox School faculty have joint appointments in other departments–including Film & Media Studies; American Culture Studies; Performing Arts; Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and African and African-American Studies–so they are poised to connect you with other research areas at the University.
