10th Anniversary Celebration
To celebrate our 10 years as an independent department on campus, we hosted two days of enriching and thought-provoking conversation, collaboration, and connection. Since our department's beginnings in 2008, we have made great leaps to encourage deeper thinking about a variety of topics related to the human experience. To celebrate this milestone we hosted a symposium to enhance and continue these conversations, with presentations from our graduate students, thoughtful discussion surrounding the future of the discipline and the department, and a keynote by Nina Jablonski.
Keynote from Dr. Nina Jablonski
Dr. Nina Jablonski gave a keynote lecture titled "Exploring and Educating About the Evolution of Human Physical Diversity," where she discussed the evolution of skin color, and educational practices for talking about race and racism.
