Associate Professor of Anthropology
B.A., Hamline University
Ph.D., University of North Carolina
Professor Ann Kakaliouras teaches courses in biological anthropology, archaeology, Indigenous Studies, Gender Studies, Science and Technology Studies, and theory in anthropology. Since obtaining her doctorate, Kakaliouras has retooled her expertise toward the historical and ethnographic study of the phenomenon of repatriation and the history of relationships between Native American Tribes and Nations and physical/biological anthropologists.
Likewise, Kakaliouras has corollary interests in contemporary and historical science studies and material culture studies within anthropology. Her most recent publications address the ways in which the physical anthropological subdiscipline of bioarchaeology has responded to the demands and legislative successes of the repatriation movement. Her current research investigates how the “Indian” (Native American) was constructed in physical/biological anthropology in the 20th century.
