Postgraduate Anthropology Dissertation Day Success!
Last month, our postgraduate taught and MSc by research students gave presentations on the progress of their research projects to an audience of students, staff and a panel of three esteemed judges: Alan Bicker, Robert Fish and Julie Scott.
The panel had the unenviable task of choosing three prize winners for outstanding research proposals based on the research idea, rigour, methods and relevance. Our talented winners are:
– Thomas Bell (MA Social Anthropology programme), The ordinary ethics of ‘Action on Climate Change’.
– Simon Chapple (MSc-Research, Anthropology programme) Enamel growth and biorhythms, and
– Louisa Jones (MSc Ethnobotany programme) Wild edible capital: the effects of commoditisation on the forager-foraged relationship amongst commercial foragers in East Kent, UK
Overall, it was an impressive day filled with original presentations and a diversity of topics and approaches that strong reflect the culture of SAC.
