Anthropology for the People in Walkertown
As Director of the Museum of Anthropology at Wake Forest University, Stephen Whittington works with his staff and students to engage the public through exhibits and educational programs about other cultures. He takes a similar approach to his archaeological research in the Mexican state of Oaxaca.
Dr. Whittington is Adjunct Associate Professor of Anthropology at Wake Forest University. He was Director of the Hudson Museum at The University of Maine from 1991 until 2002. He has directed archaeological projects in Mexico and Honduras and has analyzed ancient human skeletal remains in Honduras and Guatemala. He is currently Regional Representative for the Southeast on the board of the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries and is a member of the Public Education Committee of the Society for American Archaeology. Previously, he was Treasurer for the Southeastern Museums Conference and Vice-Chair of the Maine State Museum Commission.
