Professor David Small wins Fulbright award

Archaeologist Dr David Small, Professor of Anthropology, is the recipient of a Core Fulbright Scholar award to teach and conduct research at the University of Crete in Rethymnon, Greece  for the 2015 spring term.  He will be teaching students of archaeology on topics related to similarities between ancient Greek culture and other archaeological cultures in the world, and on the evolution of Cretan communities in the Iron Age (ca. 1100-700 BCE).  During his time at the university he will also conduct research on the use of elaborate funeral feasting as a window into chaos and rapid social change in the Cretan Iron Age.

Professor Small is the third faculty member of Lehigh’s Department of Sociology & Anthropology to win a Fulbright award in the past three years. Congratulations, David!
