It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sarah M. Nelson, Professor Emerita of Anthropology and Distinguished University Professor, on April 27, 2020. Sarah retired after 45 years of service to DU. In addition to her outstanding research and teaching, she served as Interim Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Studies and on numerous committees.
Nicole Herzog joined the Anthropology Department as assistant professor this fall. Her courses aim to help students better navigate the complexity of the human landscape, from how we understand the evolutionary basis of human sexuality and sexual expression, to using behavioral research to learn about our closest relatives.
