Becca Piexotto, CAS/MA '13
Becca Peixotto was part of the expedition team that unearthed a new species of human relative, “Homo naledi.” The discovery—which includes more than 1,500 fossils—has shifted the way scientists think about human history.
Public anthropology students like Becca work to understand lived experiences. They explore culture, power, and history in everyday life while sharpening their skills in critical inquiry, problem solving, and public communication—plus the weekly Social Justice Series and annual Public Anthropology Conference.
