Jean M. Langford (Department of Anthropology, CLA), Fall 2009
Project: “Critical Spirits: Violence, Medicine, and Mourning in Emigrant Stories of Death”
Langford wrote a conference paper, completed a pivotal chapter of her book, revised two other chapters in critical ways, and clarified the overall argument of her upcoming monograph. She met with Minnesota Press editors and developed her book proposal more thoroughly. She found that her time as an IAS fellow helped her develop an idea for an entirely new paper that bridges her IAS project and an upcoming project in interesting and unexpected ways.
