Wenner-Gren supports research in social/cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological/physical anthropology, linguistics, and closely related disciplines.
Micah Rahder is Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Anthropology at Louisiana State University. In 2011, while a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Santa Cruz, she received a Dissertation Fieldwork Grant to aid research on ‘Satellites and Senses of Place: Local Perceptions of Remote Sensing in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve,’ supervised by Dr. Andrew Matthews. Three years later, the Wenner-Gren Foundation awarded her the Engaged Anthropology Grant, which allowed her to return to her fieldsite in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve (MBR) and share the fruits of her research with the community that hosted her.
Pnina Werbner, Professor Emerita of Sociology at Keele University, used our Engaged Anthropology Grant to organize a panel discussion and debate exploring the issues surrounding growing inequality in Botswana, and share her research on the country's public-sector unions with her collaborators, academics, and other policymakers.
