Dr. Mark Fleischman “Anthropologist’s Field Work Warao”
August 25, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Dr. Mark Fleischman did the fieldwork for his Ph.D. from 1967 to 1968 in the Orinoco Delta in Venezuela with the native tribe of Warao Indians. He will be addressing the lessons he learned from his research during that significant year with the Museum audience.
With a doctorate in hand in the field of Bio-Anthropology from UCLA, Fleischman entered the field of higher education–teaching courses for a couple of years at Los Angeles City College as well as what is now California State University, Los Angeles. He would accept a position at Syracuse University in New York in 1970 and would remain there for 32 years, retiring from the university in 2002.
During the course of his career, Fleischman assisted local police in skeletal identification, analyzed a slave burial ground from the late 17th Century in Jamaica and helped in a skeletal analysis of a poor-house/sanitarium burial ground in Rome, New York.
Fleischman received his BA in Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1962, and his MA in Anthropology from the University of Chicago in 1964.
