The prize honours a peer-reviewed journal article that demosntrates crossdisciplinary research in the field of anthropology.
The team have been awarded this prize for their article published in Current Anthropology, entitled "Cultures of Fermentation". This work synthesises research in the fields of biological anthroplogy, archaeology and social anthroplogy, exploring the deep history of human interactions with microbes, their detection in the archaeological record, and the interplay of human and microbial cultures.
This article stems from a Wenner Gren Symposium, which brought together a diverse array of researchers unified by their exploration of human-microbe relationships.
Congratulations to Jessie and all the team!
