Anthropologists study human beings from every time period, in every way possible, in all their complexity. The Department of Anthropology at Berkeley has long been ranked among the top five departments in the United States. Berkeley Anthropologists have a history of innovation and leadership in emergent areas of the discipline, whether conducting their research in modern biological labs, in globalizing villages throughout the world, or at places being developed as sites of cultural heritage and national identity. The Berkeley faculty includes the largest number of winners of the J. I. Staley Prize, awarded annually to an outstanding anthropology book by a living author, the only discipline-wide award in anthropology.
