Academy Graffiti: Cultural Anthropology at the U.S. Naval Academy

Episode Summary

Visitors to the Naval Academy wouldn't see the graffiti but Midshipman Parker Ellis conducted a historical survey of graffiti at several sites for Professor Clementine Fujimura's Cultural Anthropology class. On this episode, they discuss the project and graffiti's significance, even at the Naval Academy. Some of the photos he took will be posted on the Museum's Facebook page and Twitter on December 3, 2020. Links to those sites are in the Episode Notes.
