Bowden Fellowships in the Humanities

Bowden fellow shares her project at a professional anthropology conference

Daniela Gardiner '24 was the only high school student to present a poster at the 84th Conference for the Society of Applied Anthropology March 26-30, sharing the work she did for her Dan Leslie Bowden Fellowship in the Humanities at the event in Santa Fe, N.M. Gardiner, whose project was entitled "Soviet Jewish Diaspora in NYC: Acculturation Dynamics of the Fourth Wave," spent the three days engaging with anthropology professionals and college and graduate students through seminars, workshops and her own presentation.  
Gardiner's project examined the extent to which fourth-wave Soviet Jews, who immigrated around the time of the fall of the U.S.S.R. in 1991, acculturated in New York City religiously, socially and generationally. She discussed her experience at the conference with her upper school peers during an April 16 assembly at the Lewis Family Auditorium.

All of the Bowden fellows also shared their work at Ransom Everglades on Bowden Fellows Gallery Night on Dec. 4 at the Lewis Family Auditorium and Solomon Art Gallery.
