Anthropology Students Present Research at National Conference

In anticipation of the PASSHE Undergraduate Research Conference that will be hosted by Bloomsburg University on April 25 and 26, check out what some BU Anthropology students have been doing.

Last December, BU Anthropology students presented original research at the American Anthropological Association Annual Meetings in Washington D.C. in the invited poster session “First Rites: Innovative Undergraduate Research in Anthropology” peer-reviewed by the Society for Visual Anthropology.

Students were mentored by Dr. Faith Warner in Methods in Cultural Anthropology and Applied Anthropology, and through an URSCA award in summer 2014. Their travel was supported by the College of Liberal Arts.
