Teaching

For 25 years, Dr. Stockard has enjoyed teaching across the full range of educational settings, in private research and large state universities as well as in small liberal arts colleges and at sea (on the MV Explorer). This broad teaching experience and emphasis on an ethnographic case-based approach to anthropology served as inspiration in the development of her recently published digital-first text, Cultural Anthropology: Mapping Cultures Across Space and Time (Cengage 2018).
