Dawn Pankonien
Adjunct Faculty
MA, Northwestern University

To state just one of Dawn Pankonien's pedagogical positions directly, she worries that twenty years of postmodernity in the sciences did few favors for young scholars. She believes that teaching history and political economy are essential to training students who will need to think in ways that are internationally and trans-historically significant.

Pankonien has taught courses that bear titles as diverse as 1) An Anthropology of Freedom, 2) An Anthropology of Sex, Sexuality, and Gender, 3) Field Studies in the Modern Workplace, 4) Cities that Work, 5) Varieties of Human Sensory Experience, and 6) The Social Skin: An Anthropology of Dress Practice.
