Welcome back, all culture vultures! The editors apologize for being so far behind the times, and vow to do better from now on!
There are a lot of wonderful things happening this semester, on campus and in the community, for everyone interested in culture and anthropology. One of the most exciting new developments is a new student organization – The Cultural Lens – which is open to everyone who really cares about culture. We will profile it very soon and provide a way for you to sign up.
Stay tuned, too, for news about many of the field trips and campus activities The Cultural Lens will be sponsoring. There are many other happenings you might want to check out, offered through the Human Mosaic, the Cofrin Friends of the Library, the Common Theme (Waging War, Waging Peace), and many others. We will remind you about them and let you know when and where they are (and try to be timely about it!) as they happen.
Let us also take this moment to give three huge cheers to WELCOME BACK Dr. Lynn Walter, who was away on what we hope was a very refreshing and yet productive sabbatical last year. Dr. Walter is back in her position as Chair of Anthropology, and as such is the person you should go to with your advising questions. We are all very happy to have you back, Lynn!
Please remember to send us information about cultural events in your communities, papers or exhibits you are presenting or are involved in, or anything else you think folks would like to know about.
