Congratulations to the presenters at Senior Symposium 2014 and four Anthropology majors are set to present at the 2014 National Conference on Undergraduate Research.

The anthropology class of 2014 who finished the senior thesis presentations this month. Presenting on their own ethnographic research collected in Bhutan, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, Samoa, Tanzania, South Africa and the US students tackled issues in dance, fitness, pageantry, medicine and tourism.

On April of this year four Anthropology seniors will be presenting their original research at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research in Lexington, KY.



For most of our young scholars their research has driven them to have a deep look at how medicine is practiced around the world. Maye Emlein '14 will be presenting on the ways that biomedicine comes to be customized in Masailand in Tanzania. Juan Felipe Riaño '14 will be presenting on how medical and legal discourses in Colombia shape intersexed bodies. Savannah Tenney '14 will be presenting on the social experience of ovarian cancer.

Emily DeWet '14 who will be presenting on Township Tourism in Langa Township in South Africa shares with her colleagues an interest in how inequity shapes the way that individuals make themselves in our world._DSC2451
