His field research in several cultural areas of the world has focused on changing human cultural adaptations. Most recently he worked in southeastern Alaska and in 2010 he began a new field project in Puerto Rico in collaboration with Professor Garcia-Quijano of URI. Dr. Poggie served for seven years as editor-in-chief of the journal Human Organization.
Anthropology Honor Society
URI Anthropology students have been chartered as the Alpha Rhode Island Chapter of Lamda Alpha, the national anthropology honor society. This is a tribute to the hard work of several students and to the academic excellence of our majors and our faculty. Right now, the recruitment of charter members is underway. If you're interested in being one of the first Lamda Alphas, shoot off an email to Ashley Waggoner for all the details.
The URI Anthropology Society is also up and running. Check out their page too.
