Dr. Stacy Pigg was the 2014 recipient of the Virchow Prize "for work combining a critical anthropology focus with rich ethnographic data, and which best reflects, extends, and/or advances critical perspectives in medical anthropology."  Her article, "On sitting and doing: Ethnography as action in global health" was published in Social Science & Medicine 2013 99 December 127-134. The prize is sponsored by the Anthropology of Global Health Group of the Society for Medical Anthropology, American Anthropological Association. 


Congratulations to Jennifer Shaw, PhD candidate in SA who has been accepted as an intern into the Cultural Anthropology editorial program. The  Cultural Anthropology's Editorial Intern Program was established in 2008 to help extend the journal's readership, build dialogue among SCA members about past trends and future directions, and to mentor the next generation of anthropologists who will increasingly operate in digital spaces.
