Anthropology @ Work is a lecture and workshop series I created for the liberal arts environment at Pacific University. For this series, scholars, activists, and applied anthropologists speak about their research and more broadly the ways they use anthropology to address social problems. An added dimension of this series is to explore the role of anthropology and ethnography in the workplace. These series has included Bryce Peake, Holly Barker, Megan Carney, Lisa Uperesa, Nicole Taylor, and Sarah Ono.
