Kline ’08 selected as American Anthropological Association leadership fellow

Anthropology professor and global health program co-director Nolan Kline ’08 has been selected as a leadership fellow to the American Anthropological Association, the largest scholarly and professional organization of anthropologists.

The AAA Leadership Fellows Program provides a unique opportunity for anthropologists early in their careers to learn about leadership opportunities within the association. As part of this fellowship, Kline will work with a cohort to consider ways to make the professional association, academic institutions, and other workplaces for anthropologists more supportive to anthropologists with marginalized identities. 

Kline is an activist scholar whose teaching, research, and activism focus on addressing social issues like LGBTQ+ rights, inequalities in HIV/AIDS care, and food insecurity, all of which align with the mission of the AAA to advance human understanding and apply this understanding to the world’s most pressing problems.
