Ijagbemi, Bayo
Professor of Practice

Dr. Bayo Ijagbemi had his undergraduate and some graduate studies in Nigeria before moving to the United States. He received his M.A. in Art History and Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Arizona. His diverse academic trainings in history, ethnography, development studies, and anthropology (with a focus on ecological and environmental anthropology) enable him to research within a wide range of topics, including culture, material culture, society, environment and resource management, urbanization, development, food and livelihood security, gender relations, globalization, and their various points of intersection.

In addition to his academic training, his educational and research experiences -- which cut across culture groups in west Africa, North America, and southern Africa -- have prepared him for research and teaching in socio-cultural anthropology as it relates to social and economic changes across societies and cultures. In general, Dr. Ijagbemi’s teaching methodology encourages the active engagement of students in their learning process. His teaching philosophy aims to set students on a path of self-discovery for a better appreciation of the knowledge that is gained in the process.
