Squeaky Wheel Award Recipient

2004 - Adrienne Zihlman

The Committee on the Status of Women in Anthropology (COSWA) is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2004 Squeaky Wheel Award is Adrienne Zihlman of the University of California Santa Cruz. The award will be presented at the 2005 meetings. In her many publications, including over 50 articles and a volume edited with ME Morbeck and A Galloway entitled The Evolving Female: A Life History Perspective, Zihlman directed attention to an examination of women in evolution. She has written extensively on gender differences in many aspects of physical anthropology including morphology and locomotion; women in human origins; woman as gatherer; life history of great apes; and the roots of sociality. Her continued efforts have been responsible for ensuring that an evolutionary perspective of humans includes women’s contributions.

Zihlman is a former chair of her department and vice president of the California Academy of Sciences. She is a fellow of the AAAS and the California Academy of Sciences. In addition to her scholarly work, Zihlman has received the UC Santa Cruz award for excellence in teaching. Many students have benefited greatly from Zihlman’s excellent teaching and mentoring. COSWA is honored to recognize the contributions of Adrienne Zihlman with this award.
