PSTC research is innovative, interdisciplinary, and characterized by a focus on social issues. Strong connections to three social science departments—Anthropology, Economics, and Sociology—and links to Education, Environmental Studies, History, Political Science, and Public Health provide rich opportunities for interdisciplinary investigation. The nature and depth of these collaborations is evident in the PSTC's signature research themes and the variety of affiliates' projects.
