The annual poster session at the meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology is always a great opportunity for students from the University of Puget Sound. It allows them to meet a variety of other students, scholars, and practitioners who share their interests, and today was no exception. And the University of Puget Sound was strongly represented: nine students presented their thesis projects at the large poster session.

The conference itself was at the Marriott in downtown Denver. Typically, approximately 1200 anthropologists and practitioners from education, public health, international development, and a wide variety of other fields are in attendance. In addition to the nine comparative sociology students at the poster session, two other Puget Sound students were at the conference: Kristin Gjelsteen and Parker Raup, both from the IPE program. We also all met with Jessy Arends, CSOC class of 2010, who is now a graduate students in anthropology at Mississippi State University. Overall, it’s been a good time for all.
