Amanda Poole, Department of Anthropology, was accepted into a five-day course funded by the National Science Foundation held in July 2014 at the Duke University Marine Laboratories in Beaufort, North Carolina.
This course involved intensive training on cultural domain analysis—methods in data collection and analysis that are used by applied anthropologists. Poole will incorporate these methods into her teaching, as she involves students in hands-on research using applied anthropology methods.
The IUP undergraduate anthropology program has been nationally recognized as a leader in training students in the growing field of applied and practicing anthropology.
Poole joined 11 anthropologists from across the country that were selected to participate in the training conducted by Russ Bernard (U. Florida) and Rosalyn Negron (U Massachusetts Boston).
