My name is Megan M. McCullen, and I am a visiting instructor of Anthropology at Alma College, and a doctoral candidate in Anthropology at Michigan State University. I’m a transplant from the east coast into the Great Lakes, having moved out here for college years ago. My research focuses on Native American communities of the Great Lakes during the seventeenth century. I use historical documents and archaeological data to try and understand how migration/relocation affected these communities. I have taught a variety of anthropology courses including:
- Introduction to Anthropology
- Introduction to Archaeology
- Introduction to Cultural Anthropology
- Indigenous Cultures
- Medical Anthropology
I’ve also worked on several archaeological digs as a field tech and as a teaching assistant. I have strong interests and experience in museum studies, Native American studies, and community outreach and programming. I’m a member of the board of the Michigan Oral History Association and the Nokomis Learning Center. Standard protocol: This blog is my personal opinion on things, and doesn’t reflect any of the institutions I’m affiliated with. Thanks for dropping by!
