The Ortiz Center seeks to coalesce themes identified in research by creating public spaces for anthropology and related spheres of a humanities emerging in contemporary contexts. Key to this process is engagement at the University of New Mexico beyond the traditional routes in academia by employing public anthropology to interconnect themes to the idea of community and humankind. Ortiz Center activities serve as an organic nexus for starting conversations and extending dialogue towards unforeseen possibilities and opportunities.
