Morgenstern

My dissertation research investigates semiotic processes of ethical formation and transformation in a digital context.

Nicola

As an undergraduate, I double-majored in Anthropology and Classics, and was one course short of a minor in geography. I was fortunate to have worked as a zooarchaeological research assistant to Professor Gil Stein for two years, graduated with Anthropology honors, and received Northwestern’s annual Charles D. Hurd award for independent research (archaeology).

Williams

My research is primarily concerned with how race and class articulates to the lived experience of black ethnic groups like Anglo-Caribbean immigrants in the United States and the ways in which they negotiate their identity against the American context of blackness. I propose that these ethnic negotiations are most salient in clinical settings where disease screenings as well as presumptions about disease risk are often specific to ethnicity and to historical narratives of diseased immigrant women.

Singh

As an undergraduate I was fortunate to work with research groups in different fields such as environmental science and public policy. After completing my BS in International Affairs and French I chose to attend graduate school in Anthropology because I felt it would allow for a continuation of the style of interdisciplinary academic work that I had enjoyed in my undergraduate research. My current interests are cosmopolitanism and conservation among India's new middle class.

McCarty

My dissertation research focuses on inter-household social organization at the Kazane Höyük excavations, directed by Prof. Patricia Wattenmaker. Outside modern Sanliurfa, Turkey, Kazane is home to one of the world's largest known settlements belonging to the Halaf cultural horizon (5200-4500 BCE uncalibrated, 5900-5350 cal. B.C.E.). The Halaf flourished in Southeastern Turkey, Northeastern Syria and Northern Iraq during the transitional Late Neolithic/Early Chalcolithic periods.
