Susan Kent advocated an integrated, integrative, and integrating anthropology at a time when some practitioners championed fragmentation. Her anthropology was a critical, engaged one that recognized the importance of class structures constituted in economic terms and their articulation and interplay with socially and culturally constituted gender, ethnic, and racial hierarchies. This chapter explores how she conceptualized this integrated, critically engaged anthropology—theoretically, methodologically, and practically. It also explores how the traditional subfields were integrated into and constitutive of the larger whole.
