Prof. Susan Pfeiffer  is very pleased to announce the most recent publication arising out of work on the ancestral teeth that were retained with the permission of the Huron-Wendat. Their ancestral remains were repatriated and reburied in September 2013. This is the third collaborative publication, with another manuscript recently submitted and a new project in the works.

Prof. Pfeiffer hopes these papers will effectively demonstrate to a broad readership that the retention of small tissue samples – like individual teeth – can allow descendants to learn about their ancestors through scientific archaeology.

“Maize, fish and deer: Investigating dietary staples among ancestral Huron-Wendat villages, as documented from tooth samples” by Susan Pfeiffer, Judith C. Sealy, Ronald F. Williamson, Suzanne Needs-Howarth, and Louis Lesage has been published by American Antiquity (81.3:515-532) and can be read online here. 

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.

The Real Planet of the Apes by David Begun

Cover image, Real Planet of the ApesProf. David Begun has published a new book, The Real Planet of the Apes: A New Story of Human Origins. This accessible book published by Princeton University Press presents startling new insights about our fossil ape ancestors. It alters our understanding of human origins, claiming that it was in Europe, not Africa, where apes evolved the most important hallmarks of our human lineage – such as dexterous hands and larger brains. Learn more or buy the book at http://press.princeton.edu/titles/10552.html.

The book has been reviewed by The New York Review of Books. Click here to read the review.

You can also read an excerpt from the book and read Prof. Begun’s December 1, 2015 article in The Scientist about his book here.

Valentina Napolitano Publishes Migrant Hearts

Cover image of Migrant HeartsProf. Valentina Napolitano’s new book published by Fordham University Press examines contemporary migration in the context of a Roman Catholic Church eager to both comprehend and act upon the movements of peoples. Combining extensive fieldwork with lay and religious Latin American migrants in Rome and analysis of the Catholic Church’s historical desires and anxieties around conversion since the period of colonization, Napolitano sketches the dynamics of a return to a faith’s putative center. Check out the book website at http://migranthearts.com/.


Shiho Satsuka Publishes Nature in Translation

Nature in TranslationCongratulations to Prof. Shiho Satsuka on the publication of her book Nature in Translation: Japanese Tourism Encounters the Canadian Rockies (Duke University Press, 2015).

Nature in Translation is an ethnographic exploration in the cultural politics of the translation of knowledge about nature. Drawing on nearly two years of fieldwork in Banff and a decade of conversations with the guides, Satsuka argues that knowing nature is an unending process of cultural translation, full of tensions, contradictions, and frictions. Ultimately, the translation of nature concerns what counts as human, what kind of society is envisioned, and who is included and excluded in the society as a legitimate subject.
