The Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology seeks nominations from other faculty members of students who are eligible to receive the department's Robert B. Textor Creativity Award for outstanding creativity in cultural and social anthropology.
Undergraduates and graduates, regardless of major, are eligible for consideration. Faculty are asked to submit by May 1 a brief memo nominating a student along with evidence -- such as a research paper, essay or computer program by the student -- of his or her creative work in an anthropological sense. Faculty also are asked to explain briefly why the work is significant.
The award was created by the family
of Professor Emeritus Robert Textor and others have added to the
endowment, which finances an annual prize of $500. The award will
be announced at Commencement. Address nominations to the Robert
Textor Creativity Award, in care of the department chair, Professor
