Below are highlighted only some of the many remarkable faculty at Barnard who are pursuing an international research agenda:

Tow Professor of Anthropology

Professor West’s general research interest is the relationship between society and the environment. She has conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Papua New Guinea (PNG), Australia, Germany, England, and the United States, in order to consider the linkages between environmental conservation and international development, the material and symbolic ways in which the natural world is understood and produced, the aesthetics and poetics of human social relations with nature, and the creation of commodities and practices of consumption.


Additionally, our global Alumnae Network includes graduates in Australia and New Zealand.
