Dr. Hannah Appel will teach a full credit course in the Anthropology dept. about the national and global demonstrations titled "Occupy the Field: Global Finance, Inequality, Social Movement." Dr. Appel has been heavily involved in the Occupy movement including camping at Zuccotti Park. "It is important to push back against the rhetoric of 'disorganization' or 'a movement without a message' coming from left, right and center," she wrote.

Appel told the Post that she would be as impartial as possible despite her close ties to the protests. "Inevitably, my experience will color the way I teach," she said. "But I feel equipped to teach objectively. It's best to be critical of the things we hold most sacred." Appel earned her PhD in Anthropology from Stanford. Her current project is "Futures", based on 14 months of ethnographic fieldwork in the transnational oil and gas industry in equatorial Guinea.
