AAA Summer Interns
In the summer of 2017, AAA had the honor of welcoming two new interns to Washington, DC.
Karina Nogueras is a member of the class of 2018 at the University of Central Florida. Her interests in underwater archaeology and forensic anthropology (and SCUBA certification) made her a natural fit to complete her internship with the Naval History and Heritage Command’s Underwater Archaeology Branch. Prior to serving as an intern with the AAA, Karina was a volunteer with the Florida Public Archaeology Network and treasurer of the UCF chapter of the Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society.
Palmyra Jackson graduated from Seattle University in June, 2017 with a degree in anthropology. Prior to her time as a AAA intern, Palmyra was an intern and researcher with Vanastree, working with a women-run seed-saving collective in Karnataka, India. Palmyra also interned with Black Dot, a community and resource center for black entrepreneurs. Palmyra completed her AAA internship with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art.
