IGPA Faculty Coffee – An Evaluation of the Intersection of Illinois State-Funded Agencies and the Native American Graves Protection Act: A Data-Driven Policy Initiative

October 1, 2024 from 9 – 10am CT

The Institute of Government & Public Affairs invites you to our next faculty coffee on Tuesday, October 1, 2024 from 9 – 10 am CT, in Urbana and on Zoom. For those who join in person, there will be coffee and breakfast items!

IGPA will be hosting Clinical Associate Professor Cris Hughes to speak about her IGPA Research Scholar Initiative: An Evaluation of the Intersection of Illinois State-Funded Agencies and the Native American Graves Protection Act: A Data-Driven Policy Initiative.

Amy Leman holds a Research Scholar Initiative at IGPA, is a Collaborating Scholar on IGPA’s Equity, Justice, and Human Flourishing Working Group, and is a Clinical Associate Professor in thecDepartment of Anthropology at UIUC.

Professor Hughes is a forensic anthropologist interested in perceptions of social race, and the use of biogeographic ancestry in both forensic investigations and the practice of forensic anthropology. She is particularly interested in how information drawn from skeletal remains, can impact the identification process of that person, namely method applications/standardization, casework accuracy, and method outcome interpretations. Additionally, Professor Hughes is the deputy forensic anthropologist for Champaign County Coroner’s Office, and serves the surrounding counties as needed when human skeletal remains are found.

This is a hybrid event offered on Zoom and at IGPA’s Urbana Office at 1007 W. Nevada St. Urbana, IL 61801. A calendar invitation will be sent after registration.
