Thorpe will present her paper, Being Seen by the State: Embracing Neoliberal Multicultural Recognition in Western Panama on Wednesday, March 18. Ms. Thorpe is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers University.
The John Bodley Student Travel Award was initiated by former students, and honors an international scholar whose career focused on the impact of development on indigenous peoples.
