The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Section H is proud to announce the inaugural Robert W. Sussman Award for Scientific Contributions to Anthropology. This award, in memory of the Washington University in St. Louis Physical Anthropologist, recognizes meritorious scientific contributions to the field of anthropology by mid-career anthropologists. AAAS Section H members are encouraged to nominate candidates they feel exemplify the ideals of this award. Nominees do not have to be members of AAAS (though nominators do).
Bob Sussman embodies the science and spirit of Anthropology. From fieldwork on lemurs to human biology to deconstructing the evils of race, his legacy of mentorship, caring, and dissemination of knowledge will be with us forever.
Nominations and questions should be sent to Section H Secretary Dr. Karen Strier at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for nominations is APRIL 30, 2017. Criteria and procedures can be found here.
