Palmyra Jackson first joined the AAA in July 2017 as a summer intern after completing her BA in both cultural anthropology and humanities for teaching at Seattle University. She is now the research assistant in the Professional Development, Education, and Research Department where she compiles and analyzes data for Anthropology Information Central, the AAA’s institutional research clearinghouse. Her primary areas of focus are employment trends for professional anthropologists, the availability of anthropology curricula at the pre-collegiate level, and the history of anthropology curriculum development projects. She particularly enjoys digging into the details of how curricula evolve and anthropology’s influence on present-day pedagogy.
When she’s not in the AAA office, Palmyra can be found cycling, playing board games, and petting neighborhood cats.
