My News...

does not involve weddings or babies, but I thought I'd share anyway. I'm just about finished with my first year of my PhD program at Syracuse U and have survived my first winter here--watching 140.2" of snow fall (that is 11.68 feet if you were curious). I now have multiple pairs of snow boots and know how to dig my car out from underneath large snowbanks. But soon I am traveling to Charleston, SC to begin my summer research which will hopefully roll into my dissertation project. I'm working at a National Trust site called Drayton Hall (you can visit it at I'm very excited about it and received their 2007 Wood Family Fellowship ($3000). So, I'll be in SC from May 15th-July 12th this summer if anyone finds themselves in the area. In other news, I just found out that I am the incoming Anthropology Graduate Student Organization President. So that's what I'm up to! Now back to writing final papers. Hope everyone is well and enjoying spring!
