Acknowledgement for Memorial anthropologists

At the recent Canadian Anthropology Society (CASCA) annual meeting, representatives from Memorial University received significant acknowledgement of their work.

Dr. Adrian Tanner, honorary research professor (now retired) was awarded the prestigious Weaver-Tremblay Prize. The award is named after two of Canada’s most-renowned applied  anthropologists, the late Sally Weaver and Marc-Adélard Tremblay. He was recognized for his project Social Justic, the Graph of Zorro and the Outsider, which examines policy-oriented research on Aboriginal people.

Dr. Tanner was also made a founding fellow of CASCA, a newly-created honour recognizing a select number of individuals whose contributions has been defining for anthropology in Canada.

PhD student Joshua Lalor was presented with the Salisbury Award supporting his doctoral fieldwork on the ethnography of the Waterford Crystal workforce and their role in the geographies of capitalism.

“It’s always nice to have your research recognized,” Mr. Lalor said.
