Beverly Stoeltje, Professor Emerita of Anthropology and Folklore, was honored with panels from her former students and colleagues at two major conferences this fall, the American Folklore Society and the American Anthropological Association. Drs. Lisa Gilman and Margaret Dorsey, IU alumni, are the organizers of these panels titled, "With a Riata in Her Hand: Honoring the Scholarship of Beverly Stoeltje.”
The panels recognize Dr. Stoeltje's contributions to anthropology and folklore and provide an opportunity for intellectual discussion. Dr. Stoeltje's work crosses both disciplines of anthropology and folklore, so the panels are intended to raise her visibility among both societies.
