Cultural Anthropology

Center for European Studies (CEUS at UB)

CEUS is devoted to research and intellectual exchange among faculty and students on political, cultural, and social transformations of contemporary Europe as well as Europe’s multiple historical traditions and close connections to North America. The Center encourages the creation of networks across disciplinary and geographic boundaries. It encourages collaboration with other area universities and colleges, and develops partnerships with both European and North American programs in European Studies. The University at Buffalo is well poised to be the home of CEUS, given the international spirit of Buffalo – a city with a rich history of European immigration, and located at the border of Ontario, Canada.


Physical Anthropology
