2019 University Awards within the Department of Anthropology
Father Murray Integrative Anthropology Paper Award- Anthropology is the study of the human, writ large. But it is too often divided into a multitude of discreet ways to think about the human experience. Integrative anthropology is a broad-scale and generous anthropology, where diverse theoretical and methodological toolkits have the potential to merge, meld, deviate, and entangle. Papers in this area can cross traditional boundaries and draw from a range of different areas of scholarship in their efforts to develop a fuller, even if sometimes messier, understanding of being and becoming human. The recipient for 2019 was Sarah Seaberg. The title of her paper was "The Development of a Culture of Sustainability in Connemara".
The David Huffman Scholar/Athlete Award- This award is presented to students with outstanding performance in the anthropology major and in athletics. In 2019 the recipient was Mia Ayer (golf).
The Julian Samora Award- This award is presented to an outstanding senior who has demonstrated broad engagement with academic life. In 2019 the recipient was Julia Mackessy.
The Peter Brown Professional Achievement Award- To the anthropology student with outstanding performance in the tasks of a professional academic in one or more of the following arenas: publication, presentation at professional meetings, grants, fellowships. The recipient for 2019 was Grace Garvey.
