Anthropological burner

Anthropology Professor Deborah Boehm is a gifted researcher and teacher whose excellence in both fields has been recognized by the top professional organizations in her field.

She is a recipient of the Ruth Benedict Global Citizenship Award, an award granted by the Center for Public Anthropology to only 1 percent of those teaching introductory anthropology in North America.

Her research into the areas of deportation and north-south migration has also been honored by the American Council of Learned Societies, which chose Boehm for a fellowship because of its great potential to create new knowledge that will improve our understanding of the world.
