Diversity Dialogues: A Podcast Series Curated by "This Anthro Life"
Faculty grant recipients: Anita Hannig, Ryan Collins, and Adam Gamwell (Anthropology)

“Anthropology’s job is to make the world a safe place for human differences.” ~ Ruth Benedict, American cultural anthropologist. 

A central problem we address through This Anthro Life is that people of different disciplines, industries, or walks of life share the human condition but lack the time, skills, or knowledge to talk across and learn from difference. In a world where inequalities, power differentials, and endemic privilege continue to impact the fabric of university communities, these conversations provide a needed starting point.
