13 Questions podcast

Nov 28, 2020

James M. "Jay" VanderVeen, a professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and assistant director of the University Center for Excellence in Teaching at IU South Bend, teaches everything in anthropology, from ancient Mesoamerica to "Zombies in Popular Culture." He has won teaching awards across the university and is a proponent of active learning, whether in person or online in media-rich environments. His students have excavated in the northern Indiana region and in the Dominican Republic, both on land and beneath the sea. He has also taken students everywhere, from Mayan ruins in Mexico to underpasses in Chicago, all in the effort to learn how humans signify their beliefs.
VanderVeen completed his B.A. in anthropology at Albion College. He earned an M.A. in historical anthropology and a Ph.D. in archaeology and social context from Indiana University Bloomington.
