Project Description

Mr. Reuther is a Ph.D. student in anthropology at Tulane University, where he is studying the ways in which humans and their environments influence each other over time. His doctoral research is focused upon the residents of lower Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, and the connections between their personal histories with land loss, their traditional cultural heritage, and governmental efforts to protect and revitalize nearby wetland ecosystems. He earned an M.A. in anthropology at Tulane University and a B.A. in anthropology at the University of Florida. Previously, Mr. Reuther was a Monroe Fellow with the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South. He also has professional experience working as an archaeologist in cultural resources management. He is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the Louisiana Folklore Society.
