Appointments, honors and activities

Faculty and staff honors:

- Professor of anthropology Michele Buzon, along with colleagues from the University of Chicago and University of Michigan, has won a Humanities Without Walls Changing Climate Grant of $136,000. The project, “Coping with Changing Climates in Early Antiquity: Comparative Approaches between Empiricism and Theory,” also will provide support and training for Purdue anthropology Ph.D. student, Katie Whitmore. The project will investigate the social and cultural perceptions of, and experiences with, climate change in the Bronze and Early Iron Ages, which is the third to first millennium BCE, through a multidisciplinary approach that convenes archaeologists, bioarchaeologists and text specialists focusing on three key geographic areas: Egypt and Nubia; the Eastern Mediterranean and Anatolia; and Mesopotamia. The Humanities Without Walls consortium is funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is based at the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities.
