Spring on-campus talks by anthropologists


On Tuesday March 1 during common hour (12-1:15) in the McCook library the department will be hosting a free lunch for majors and prospective majors to talk about anthropology and work.  We’ll hear from a few recent anthro grads from Trinity who will tell us about how their studies here were useful (or not) in their job searches.  Come join us for a free lunch from First and Last.

On Tuesday April 5 again during common hour (12-1:15) in the McCook library the department will be hosting another free lunch for majors and prospective majors.  This time we’ll hear from recent Trinity grads who are in graduate school in anthropology.  We’ll talk more generally about applying and being in grad school.  More food…

On Thursday April 7 during common hour (12:15-1:15) in Hallden (next to McCook) Jim Trostle will be giving a talk as part of the Faculty Lecture series.  His title is: “Some adventures in global health and interscalar travel,” and he’ll be talking about his 13-year health research project in Ecuador and the challenges of moving across multiple scales of analysis from genetic to geographic.

Lastly, on Wednesday, April 20th at 4:30pm anthropologist Alma Gottlieb will be delivering the Getlin Lecture for the religion department entitled Crossing Religious Borders: Jews and Cape Verde.  She’ll be speaking in Mather Hall, Terrace Rooms A, B, & C.  Gottlieb is an engaging lecturer and I urge you all to attend.
