Even though the pieces stylistically looked like something you’d find in Greece, they were made from local, red mud… essentially bootlegging,” says Levy, a business major and archeology minor, who spent a summer in Turkey working on the Hacimusalar Hoyuk excavation site.

Dougherty, a geography major, researched in the Peruvian Amazon speaking with residents about the impact of a proposed project to build a road that would allow better access to Puerto Esperanza. She conducted her research through participatory mapping, a relationship-based research method which allowed her to connect with people one on one, gain their trust and then learn the information she needed for her research.
“The connection between trafficking and terrorism is often overlooked. I strongly believe that [human trafficking] has a purpose greater than violence alone — it is a tactic,” says Pomaranski, who researched the use of human trafficking by terror groups Boko Haram and ISIS.
