Professors VanValkenburgh and Eastman Awarded Humanities Center Multidisciplinary Collegial Network Grant

Anthropology faculty Parker VanValkenburgh and Benjamin Eastman received one of the first three grants from UVM’s Multidisciplinary Collegial Network program, to support a series of critical discussions and presentations on the “ontological turn” in the humanities and interpretive social sciences — a wave of new research examining how categories of being are constructed, as well as their political implications.
In the spring, UVM anthropology will be hosting a series of faculty-led research seminars on the subject of the “ontological turn” in anthropology. Faculty presenters include John Crock (January 21st), Jennifer Dickinson (February 25th), and Luis Vivanco (April 15th) of the department of anthropology, as well as Todne Chipumuro (Religion) (February 11th) and Ingrid Nelson (Geography) (March 18th). All presentations will take place from 12:15pm to 1:30pm in Williams Hall. Further details, including talk titles and an additional visiting speaker event, will be posted here shortly.
