Congratulations to our new PhDs and MAs!

The Department of Anthropology is proud to celebrate the successful dissertation defenses of Tomi Birkett, Natasha Davis, Hélène Quiniou, Anna Reumert and Howard Taylor. All defended their dissertations this semester, culminating their journeys in the department during a period of exceptional difficulty for field researchers, namely the COVID pandemic. We salute their tenacity and scholarly excellence. Congratulations!

We are also thrilled to celebrate the completion of MA degrees by students in both Museum Anthropology and Sociocultural Anthropology. This semester's graduates in Museum Anthropology include Wenqi Chen and Misia (Mingxia) Yuan. In Sociocultural Anthropology, the graduates include Sara Alvarez, Samantha Davenport, Dayonni Phillip, and Justin Reidy.
