    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Michelle Zimbalist Rosaldo earned her doctorate in social anthropology at Harvard in 1972. She joined Stanford's faculty in the Department of Anthropology in the same year and quickly rose to national prominence as an anthropologist, sociolinguist, and feminist scholar. She was co-chair of Stanford's first Committee on Feminist Studies (1980-1981) and helped develop the curriculum for the Program in Feminist Studies. In 1979 she was awarded the Dinkelspiel Award for outstanding service to undergraduate education. She died from an accidental fall while conducting research in the Philippines in 1981.
