"The goal of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences." ~Ruth Benedict
Welcome to my online home. This site is a work-in-progress, so please excuse some of the dust as I remodel!
I am Dr. Jessica Amato, and I am a professor of anthropology at Napa Valley College in the beautiful bay area of California. I have taught at Napa Valley College for twelve years.
Please use this website as a resource to find out more about my background as an applied anthropologist and teacher, the courses and degree that we offer through the anthropology department, and the many career options and academic pathways available to anthropology students both on-campus and off-campus.
