Chris Morehart, of Georgia State University's Department of Anthropology, has been awarded the highly competitive National Geographic Society Research Grant for his project, titled "Between Two Empires: Sacrifice, Community, and Power in the Basin of Mexico during the Epiclassic Period." The National Geographic Society awards grants for scientific field research and exploration that have both a geographical dimension and relevance to other scientific fields and are of broad scientific interest.

Morehart's interests include ecological anthropology, political economy, gender relations, archaeology, Mesoamerica, and Latin America.
