This week, anthropology and sociology majors Emily Pyle and Becca Heslin successfully defended their honors theses.  Emily spent the year exploring the criminal justice response to domestic violence through a comprehensive review of the research literature and interviews with advocates, lawyers, and police officers. For her thesis, Becca examined “hyper-reality,” also through a comprehensive literature review and interviews in which she investigated reactions to shows like The Bachelor.  Both students did a fantastic job, and we are so proud of their accomplishments!
