LETTER FROM

THE EDITOR

Vol. 6, Spring 2018

On behalf of my fellow editors, I am thrilled to present to you the sixth volume of Sapient, the Undergraduate Journal of Biological Anthropology. This journal was created to showcase the impressive academic work of undergraduate students, and to foster community and intellectual curiosity across all domains of Biological Anthropology: namely Human Variation and Genetics; Evolutionary Theory and History; Primate Behavior and Ecology; and Paleoarcheology and Morphology.

 

This year, the editorial board has continued to integrate students from various departments and schools in and around Columbia University. We worked closely and holistically with all contributing authors throughout the editing process, which continues to enrich our intercollegiate community. On behalf of the entire Sapient board and our faculty liaison, Professor Jill Shapiro, I am eager to announce the relaunching of the Sapient website in October 2018. This reinvigorated presence, both online and on campus at Columbia and beyond, will be elevated by new events and opportunities for editorial writing throughout the school year.

 

We hope that you will continue to follow our evolution as an academic and extracurricular hub, and that you enjoy the sixth volume of Sapient as much as we loved creating it.
