Christina Crespo is a PhD candidate in Integrative Conservation and Anthropology and is completing the Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies. Her research explores how scientists strategically transform scientific practices towards more just processes. In particular, she is interested in how practicing feminist science shapes how knowledge is produced and how scientists are made. She is a member of the feminist and anticolonial marine science laboratory, CLEAR, which is based in Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. She was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2021 by the Graduate School at the University of Georgia.
Dr. Katherine L. Reinberger is a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Associate at the Center for Applied Isotope Studies at UGA. Her research focuses on novel uses of isotope analysis to answer archaeological questions about past human populations, with projects in Italy, Romania, and the Southeastern United States. She received her Ph.D. in Anthropology in 2022 from the University of Georgia, where she studied diet and mobility of ancient Greek soldiers in Sicily. Her work explores the intersection between historical records and science, investigating how modern methods can challenge and corroborate our understanding of the past.
