Alice Storey Winner of 2005 SHD
Alice Storey, who holds a J. Armand Bombardier Internationalist Fellowship (2004), and is a doctoral student in anthropology at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, was named the winner of the 2005 SHD Prize Essay contest. The title of her essay is “Layers of Discovery: Exploration and Innovation in Oceania.” This work is the result of considerable archaeological fieldwork in the Western Pacific. She holds the B.A. and M.A. degrees from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. Ms. Storey could not attend the annual meeting in Williamsburg, but will present her paper at our society’s conference in Portland, Oregon, which is much closer to her home in British Columbia. The prize includes a $600.00 award, plus transportation to, and lodging at, the annual meeting. Her paper will appear in a future issue of Terrae Incognitae.
