The 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (2013)


Session 27. Variation in Human Dental Form: A symposium in honor of Edward F. Harris. Invited Poster Symposium. Chair: Heather Edgar, Loren Leese and Helen Liversidge

Friday Morning, 301E Add to calendar

This symposium is held in recognition of the contributions of Edward F. Harris (Professor, University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center) has made throughout his career. Edward received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University in 1977. Following postdoctoral work, his career has been spent in a department of orthodontics. However, his research in dental morphology, metrics, development, and variation has always been anthropological. This research, along with Edward’s support, insights, editorship,  and camaraderie, has influenced at least two generations of anthropologists. The breadth and depth of his work is inspiring, and the papers in this symposium, reflect that broad impact.
