Susan Hyatt

Susan Hyatt (Ph.D. University of Massachusetts) is Professor and Chair of the Anthropology department at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. During the 1980s, she worked as a community organizer in Southwest Chicago, reinforcing her commitment to community-based collaborative teaching and research. She and her students have been working on a project called The Neighborhood of Saturdays, which tells the story of a neighborhood in South Indianapolis where Jewish immigrants and African Americans once lived side-by-side sharing bonds of friendship and fellowship. She is currently researching the history of Jewish immigrants, who were relocated to Indiana during the early years of the 20th century.
