Deborah Pellow, professor of anthropology in A&S and Maxwell, is this year’s recipient of the William Wasserstrom Prize for the Teaching of Graduate Students. Known for her globetrotting research into ethnicity, feminism and proxemics (i.e., the interrelationship of physical and social space), she is a sought-after teacher and advisor. “Her decades of dedicated service to and care for doctoral education are richly deserved,” says Distinguished Professor Robert Rubenstein. Pellow will be honored at the Graduate School Doctoral Hooding Ceremony on May 10.
