Dr. Briana Doering, assistant professor at the University of Wyoming and an alum of the U-M anthropology department, has won the Tübingen Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology Prize for her thesis, entitled "Evaluating the Social and Environmental Processes of the Athabascan Migration.” The thesis examines the circumstances surrounding the migration of Dene/Athabascan populations from Alaska and the Yukon as far south as Arizona, some 1500 years ago.
