Office: HAR318



Monica Cable (PhD, Tulane University) is the Director of Fellowships, Director of East Asia Recruitment, and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anthropology. Prof. Cable has headed the Fellowships Office since 2010 and personally understands how truly transformational a postgraduate fellowship can be: she won a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and after graduating from Middlebury College spent a year researching the status and the role of women in Chinese society in multiple sites across Asia and Australia. Dr. Cable’s background in adventure travel comes in handy when helping students decide where they would like to spend a year living, researching, and teaching. When not in the office or classroom, Prof. Cable can be found speaking with Chinese high school students about the benefits of the liberal arts, guiding F&M students through China, Tibet and India, or adding to her list of countries visited (62 at last count).
