Dylan Shaul Wins Richard B. Lee Award

Congratulations to Anthropology undergraduate student Dylan Shaul for being awarded the 2015 Richard B. Lee Award! This award is given annually to the best undergraduate paper in Critical Anthropology written for a course in the department.

The awards committee felt Dylan’s essay, “The Gift of the Minga: Obligation, Time, and Resistance in the Andes” stood out on the basis of its sophisticated reading of the theory of the gift, and its critical reengagement with that concept in light of Andean ethnography. The essay was written for ANT378H, Gift, Money and Finance.
