Anthropology majors and Classical Studies minors may apply for departmental awards for scholastic merit or to conduct independent research with a faculty member.

Projects include, but are not limited to, participation in archaeological excavations, cultural anthropological field studies, classical studies research abroad, field schools, travel to meetings where the student is presenting a paper, and independent library research involving travel or significant research off-campus. Students should work with a faculty adviser to complete the required documents.

Dr. Andrew Bauer (B.A. in Interdisciplinary Anthropology, 2000, Summa cum laude) received his M.A. (2003) and Ph.D. (2010) from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. His doctoral research explored the political ecology and production of social differentiation in south India during the Iron Age. He received two prestigious National Science Foundation doctoral dissertation research fellowships and was recently awarded the 2010 Outstanding Oral Presentation Award from the Geological Society of America. Dr. Bauer published nine journal articles and book chapters on archaeology as a graduate student and currently has a book contract for an edited volume entitled The Archaeology of Politics: The Materiality of Political Practice and Action in the Past. As an undergraduate at The University of Akron, Dr. Bauer worked for four years on Dr. Matney’s excavations in Turkey; his subsequent fieldwork has taken him to Iran and India. His current fieldwork in India is featured in Archaeology magazine (May/June 2010).
