Faculty Advisor to Anthropology

Sarah Hautzinger joined the faculty at Colorado College in 1998, after earning her Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University. She is a sociocultural anthropologist with interests in power, politics and violence; gender and feminist anthropology; Latin America and the Caribbean; African Diaspora in the New World; race and ethnicity; political economy; and urban anthropology. Her publications include an array of journal articles and book chapters; she recently published the ethnography Violence in the City of Women: Police and Batterers in Bahia, Brazil (University of California, 2007), focused on an all-women's police station designed to address gender-based violence against women, and on how men cope with changing expectations for masculinity in relation to violence. Her current research is on militarization as a cultural process, with Colorado Springs as the primary research site.
