Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

In a small four-field anthropology department, Gillogly teaches Introduction to Anthropology, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology, Environmental Anthropology, Migration and Immigration, International Development, Livehoods and Exchange, and Anthropology of Language; world cultures classes such as the Peoples of Southeast Asia. Some of these courses are cross-listed with International Studies and most fulfill requirements for that degree as well as for the concentration in Anthropology. She also teaches a Global Studies Certificate Course, Language and Culture and the International Studies Senior Seminar. She also facilitates student research projects and involves students in local research, such as on the changing landscape of Pike Creek; cooperative exchanges in the arts networks of Kenosha; and, soon, oral histories of Colonial Park.

Research Interests

Watershed management across political boundaries; how people connect to their local environment (through stories, history, daily actions); changing relationships of power in international development projects focusing on the connection between the global and the local; transformations in kinship and marriage practices with changes in the agricultural economy; and the rise of indigenous citizenship movements in Southeast Asia.

Consulting Interests

Working with local groups on environmental management plans.
