RECOGNITION Alert Re: Kansas students
Congratulations to the 21 Public Anthropology Award Winners at the University of Kansas
in Prof. Bart Dean's ANTH 160 & 1621 (Anthropology) classes who participated in a North American competition involving over 3,500 students from 25 schools. For the names of Kansas Public Anthropology Award winners as well as their award-winning letters click here.
Prof. Dean has played an integral part in Public Anthropology’s online student community, showcasing the ability of Kansas students to learn effective writing skills while being active global citizens. He demonstrates how combining technology with cultural concerns in academic courses positively engages students to participate in the broader world beyond their academic setting, while gaining the skills needed for a productive, active life after graduation.
Prof. Dean, in addition to being an Associate Professor at KU, is a research affiliate at the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (Tarapoto, Peru) where he directs the Anthropology Section of the Regional Museum. His research focuses on the ethnology of the Peruvian Amazon, health, human rights, political anthropology, social theory and ethics.
Please join in congratulating Prof. Dean and his prize-winning students.
