This timeline was constructed as part of a digital collection on the history and future of Anthropological STS at the University of California Irvine. This UCI collection is also a part of a broader exhibit on STS Across Borders, a special exhibit organized by the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) to showcase how the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) has developed in different times, places, and intellectual traditions. The timeline offers a record of the founding of UCI’s Anthropology Department as well as other developments in department structures, faculty hires and affiliations, degree programs, concentrations, emphases, and course offerings. The dates and information listed here were gathered through an analysis of UCI’s General Catalogues from the years 1965-2018. Events are listed in chronological order according to the years of their appearance, development, and disappearance in the General Catalogues. Unless otherwise stated, quotes and page numbers are taken from the first General Catalogue in which the described person, program, event, or position appears. Dates referring to Anthropology or other Social Sciences faculty do not necessarily reflect employment status at UCI. Rather, they indicate the years in which these persons are shown to have had an official affiliation with UCI's Department of Anthropology or its predecessors in the School of Social Sciences. The dates of Social Sciences and Anthropology courses are listed in order of the first year in which they were shown to have been offered at UCI.
