Setha Low Awarded Major Anthropology Prize for Distinguished Achievement

Professor Setha M. Low (Anthropology/Environmental Psychology) has won the 2016 SANA Prize for Distinguished Achievement in the Critical Study of North America, bestowed by the Society for the Anthropology of North America.
 
The prestigious prize is awarded to a senior anthropologist for broad-based contributions to research, teaching, and service related to the development of critical studies of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Low will receive the award at the American Anthropological Association in Minneapolis in November. 
 
In September, Low received the inaugural Senior Scholar Award from the Society of Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology (SUNTA). A new edition of her book Spatializing Culture was published in August.
 
Low’s novel research focuses on the anthropology of space and place. She is the director and one of the founders of the GC’s Public Space Research Group, which focuses on the relationship of public space to people and communities within the context of legal, political, and economic forces.
