"I was and am passionate about anthropology, about the trajectory of human evolution, the construction of race and the nature of racism, our expanding understandings of the spectra of sex and of gender, and the cognition and emotion of non-human animals. I taught these topics not for my convenience, though, but because I believe these issues matter deeply to the next generation's civic participation in our world."

See a time-lapse as the Archaeology of Harvard Yard class gets started. Arthur Libby and Ryan Sweeney of Harvard Landscape Services prepped a small site in Harvard Yard, then students carefully laid out the grid, supervised by Peabody Museum archaeologists. In the weeks ahead, they'll excavate downward to locate a 17th-century trash zone. Time lapse video by Teaching Fellow Jada Ko. They'll be working in the Yard again today at 1:00. #HYAP2016 http://hvrd.me/tfO7304eRs4

Aimee Meredith Cox is a cultural anthropologist of African and African American Studies at Fordham University. She received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Michigan. Dr. Cox’s first book is Shapeshifters: Black Girls and the Choreography of Citizenship (Duke University Press, 2015), in which Cox explores how young Black women in a Detroit homeless shelter employ strategic methods she characterizes as choreography to disrupt the social hierarchies and prescriptive narratives that work to marginalize them.
