Rector publishes articles in RVAMag

June 13, 2018

Amy Rector, Ph.D., assistant professor of anthropology, contributed two recent articles to RVAMag.com - one on her research in South Africa's bone vaults and another offering a critique of a recent RichmondMoms.com article on being a mother in RVA. The former details her and her study abroad students' exploration of humankind's shared origins in Pretoria, offering a brief history of the racial elements characteristic of past fossil classification efforts. The latter article takes issue with a RichmondMoms.com article's purported anthropological perspective on what it's like to be a mother in RVA.
