Anthropology in Performance

This is the script of a play that I co-wrote with Michelle Gorman, Michaela Grillo, and Chris Bloechl, and which our Anthropology in Performance class staged in May, 2007. Professor Allen teaches the course. […or “taught” — past tense? I hope not.] I’m really proud of what we accomplished.

“A Constitution in Search of a Philosophy” – published!

An article I wrote last year (as a sophomore) has just been published in the Spring 2007 volume of Inquiry, GW’s undergraduate research journal. The title: A Constitution in Search of a Philosophy: Anthropological Perspectives on Judicial Interpretation.

I presented an earlier version of this paper at the 2006 University Writing Symposium. Thanks to Professor Derek Malone-France for his helpful comments on earlier drafts.
