Winter/Spring 2018-2019

Dear Alumni & Friends,

Anthropology at WSU remains vibrant and exciting and is a testament to the adage “the only constant in life is change.”

We welcomed two new faculty members this academic year, Dr. Aaron Blackwell and Dr. Anne Pisor, who provide introductions to their research. Also this year we welcomed 11 new graduate students, who joined the 55 continuing students, and we congratulated several recent graduates. Anthropology faculty and students continue to conduct and publish innovative research.

In addition, the generosity of our alumni and friends helped us welcome our 18th annual William D. Lipe Visiting Scholar in Archaeological Method and Theory. Donations to the Anthropology Excellence Fund support bringing scholars to campus to speak in our Colloquium series and to interact with our graduate and undergraduate students, while also supporting the activities of our Undergraduate Anthropology Club, among many other benefits.

You can read all about these changes and more in  the links at left. And, if you are interested in supporting Anthropology at WSU, you have several options to choose from.

As the Department of Anthropology recently ventured into social media, we invite you to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to keep up with the latest news!

Andrew Duff, Chair
