Anthropologist Rosita Worl, president of Sealaska Heritage Institute and Vice Chair of the Sealaska Corporation Board of Directors, will receive the prestigious Solon T. Kimball Award for Public and Applied Anthropology. The award will be presented to Dr. Worl at the annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association in San Francisco, November 19-23.
Worl, who has taught classes at UAS, was nominated by members of the Department of Anthropology at UAA, including Steve Langdon, Phyllis Fast and Kerry Feldman, and by Dan Monteith, an anthropologist in the Department of Social Science at the UAS.
"She is truly deserving, and I believe has accomplished more than any other practicing American anthropologist presently living," Langdon wrote in his nominating letter. Contact Kerry Feldman firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
