of Central Asia where I am teaching in the Anthropology Department and in their First Year Seminar, a yearlong liberal arts core course. I received my Ph.D. in sociocultural anthropology in May 2012, and
currently live in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan with my wife and our 10 month old daughter.
My faculty profile has information about my dissertation, research, etc.
About winter term projects - AUCA is always open to students coming either informally or formally, just have them contact me. A more viable option for field research is the new AUCA-Bard study abroad
program, which provides for language work, coursework, and fieldwork for anthropology students. We have a great department that is always willing to accomodate foreign students and researchers from all

RachShea Winsett (OC 08) Completed my Masters Degree in Historical Archaeology at the College of William and Mary. I am currently working on my dissertation proposal in Historical Anthropology at William and Mary. I focus on African American history, identity and race and racialization.
I am not in charge of the project but if there are Anthropology majors looking for a field school in Historic Archaeology, the College of William and Mary offers a field school at Colonial Williamsburg. I also work in the Institute for Historical Biology (IHB) so if students are interested in doing research on biological anthropology and community engagement, the IHB is a great resource.
