GW Anthropology alumna Amanda Eller gets article published and Undergraduate Peri Buch awarded Fulbright Scholarship

The article written by Amanda Eller is titled: Transactional sex and sexual harassment between professors and students at an urban university in Benin. It was published in the Culture, Health & Sexuality: An International Journal for Research, Intervention and Care. Eller discusses the relationships between female students and their professors. She analyzes the determination of power and how it affects the professor's ability to determine consent as well as why the professor, in these cases, is perceived as the victim.
The link to the article is posted below.

Undergraduate Peri Buch, a senior in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences double-majoring in Archaeology and History, has been awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship. She will be studying at the University of Haifa in Israel while on this grant. Peri has worked on multiple archaeological digs in Israel with GW's Dr. Eric Cline, including his sites at Megiddo and tel-Kabri.
