Campus style-icon, Annie Winter ‘19, on Thursday declared her Anthropologie major. She said she was “shocked that a small school offered an entire major dedicated to one of her favorite clothing retailers, but, hey! That’s liberal arts for ya!” Also, they sell candles.
The major is a little more challenging than Winter had originally anticipated, but she has learned to adapt and excel. “I thought we would be reading things like Vogue and Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, but we deadass have textbooks that are like 500 pages. I had to replace my Goyard with a Jansport to lug around titles like Doing Ethnography and The Circulation of Children: Kinship, Adoption, and Morality in Andean Peru.”
Winter has enrolled in classes like Landscapes of Boko Haram: Border Violence and Wealth Creation in Africa. “I’m a little confused about how this course that examines the ways in which populations in the southern Lake Chad Basin in Central Africa think about and work within frontier landscapes — which are seen as spaces of danger and violence but also arenas for wealth creation and cultural innovation — is going to help me become the next Carolina Herrera, but if this is what I need to do in order to win the next CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund then leggo.”
