Lewis Borck (Ph.D. 2016) is excited, and surprised, to announce that in mid-August he will be starting in the Department of Native American Studies at the University of Oklahoma, Norman as the Horizon Endowed Chair in Native American History and Culture. In his new position, he’ll be collaborating with his colleagues in NAS on critical Indigenous heritage studies. But he’s also looking forward to being able to walk across the sidewalk to the neighboring building that houses Anthropology and talk and work with School of Anthropology alums Brand Bethke (Ph.D. 2016), Jessica I. Cerezo-Román (Ph.D. 2014), Samuel Duwe (Ph.D. 2011), Thomas Fenn (Ph.D. 2011), and Matthew Pailes (Ph.D. 2015), and Bonnie Pitblado (Ph.D. 1999). During his time at UArizona, Borck was advised by Drs. Barbara MillsLars Fogelin, and Daniela Triadan, and by Mr. Gary Christopherson at the Center for Applied Spatial Analysis.
