Department of Anthropology Announces 2014 Fieldwork Photo Contest Winners

The Department of Anthropology is very happy to announce the winners of the 2014 Fieldwork Photo Contest.  The Fieldwork Photo Contest is intended to spread the message about the department and anthropology in general through the fieldwork photographs of faculty, students, and alumni.

This year’s Fieldwork Photo Contest is particularly exciting because all of the winners are either students or alumni – a real testament to how active and engaged our students are.

The winner’s photographs are posted on the department website, distributed over department social media, and displayed in the main department offices (in Baker Hall)

And without further ado, the winners:
