Anthropology Symposium Showcases Undergraduate Research

The Humboldt State Anthropology Department will host its first-ever undergraduate research symposium 6 p.m. Nov. 29 in the Native American Forum on the first floor of the Behavioral and Social Sciences Building.

The conference will feature poster and podium presentations on a variety of topics including cultural, archaeological, biological and linguistic anthropology.

“Many of our undergraduate anthropology students are conducting independent research and a lot of that research is on the graduate level,” HSU Anthropology Professor Mary Glenn says. “This symposium is a long overdue opportunity for them to gain valuable presentation experience and share their work with the community.”

Research topics include:

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Doors open at 6 p.m. and podium presentations begin at 6:30 p.m. A question and answer session will follow each presentation. For more information, contact Mary Glenn in the Anthropology Department at (707) 826-3126.
