Anthropology graduate student Hiroko Kumaki has been awarded a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship with the Dartmouth Society of Fellows starting in Fall 2020. The Dartmouth Society of Fellows seeks to create an interdisciplinary community grounded in exceptional and innovative research and the ability to transcend disciplinary boundaries.

Hiroko will participate in research, teaching, and mentorship over the course of the three year fellowship while continuing her research "Living Fukushima: Politics and Ethics of Living ‘Well’ with Radiation in Japan," which examines the everyday politics and ethics of living with environmental toxicity in the aftermath of the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan in 2011.
