Historical NoteReturn to Top

Raymond Fogelson is a professor of Anthropology, of Human Development, and of Social Sciences in the College, conducts research on the ethnology and ethnohistory of Indians of the Southeastern United States. He is concerned with issues involving Indian identity, especially with problems of tribal recognition and the repatriation/rematriation of physical remains and material culture as well as questions of mixed Indian status. He also has abiding interests in the comparative study of Fourth World religions and processes of religious change, in problems of psychological anthropology and the history of anthropology. The conjunction of anthropology, the presentation and representation of native peoples, and popular culture, particularly as manifested in World's Fairs and resorts, constitute another focus of research. This relates also to his interests in the anthropology of museums.
