Two Graduate Center Anthropology Students Win Fulbrights

Evan Mann and Carly Batist

Two Graduate Center students in the Anthropology program won 2021–2022 Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants. 

Ph.D. candidate Carly Batist (Anthropology (Biological)) plans to use her grant to research the vocalizations of black-and-white ruffed lemurs in Madagascar. She explains how the lemurs are key to protecting rainforests from climate change and how her work reflects a change in conservation to work more with local communities

Ph.D. student Evan Mann (Anthropology) will research ceramic vessels and pottery of hunter-gatherers who lived in what is now Quebec. He explains how pottery can tell a more detailed picture of a past culture, and how his academic career took him from accounting to anthropology

The program provides research and teaching awards to support two to 12 months of work in more than 125 countries.
