At the intersection of English and Anthropology
Luciana Duarte ‘93 laughs when she thinks back to the question so many people asked her when she was a student, “What are you going to do with your liberal arts degree?”
The Brazilian native, originally set on being a literature major, found herself adding a new subject after an experience to which many fellow alumni can relate: She took a class and fell in love with anthropology.
“My eyes were opened to just how incredibly diverse the human experience is and how that spoke to me because of my own diversity of experience growing up,” she says.
Now as the VP and Global Head of Employee Experience at HP, Duarte uses her double major every day in a range of creative ways. “I work at exactly the intersection of English and anthropology,” she says.
