Wenner-Gren supports research in social/cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological/physical anthropology, linguistics, and closely related disciplines.
Dr. Ashley Hazel is a postdoctoral researcher in anthropology at Stanford University. In 2008, while a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan, she received a Dissertation Fieldwork Grant to aid research on 'Sexually Transmitted Disease, Ecology, and Reproduction among the Tjimba/Himba: A Pastoral Community in Transition,' supervised by Dr. Bobbi Stiers Low. Following her fieldwork research seeking to measure the prevalence of two common STDs—gonorrhea and herpes—and identify significant ecological and behavioral risk factors for disease in her host community, she received Wenner-Gren's Engaged Anthropology Grant to return to her field site and share her findings.
The final NYAS Anthropology Section meeting lecture of 2013 (but not of the season!) took place Monday, as we welcomed the University of Chicago’s Shannon Lee Dawdy and discussant Meredith Linn of Barnard College to discuss her ethnohistorical research of French New Orleans with Erupting Ruins: Dialectics of the Urban Landscape.
