Morrigan Fogarty is concerned with all things dead, undead, dying, and undying.

Elizabeth is in her third year of the Bachelor in Anthropology, and her main hobbies include painting flowers, watching long youtube essays, reading, and complaining that she would like to read more. She likes to lie in the dirt and take photos of the tiny flowers in the grass that you can barely see when you walk by, and fill up a notebook with sketches of pigeons. Her primary topics of interest include art, the environment and politics, but she's also interested in learning about almost everything else in the world.

This is Liv! A second-year Anthropology student with a strong passion for writing, music, café hopping and the Sauna.

In her free time, she consistently tries to find her meaning in life by wanting to do so many things that she ends up not doing any of them. But hey, it’s her first time on this planet. Liv particularly enjoys writing about seemingly meaningless things like toilets, shoelaces, or random everyday observations. But of course, as we are all Anthro people here, everything in life has a meaning. Or does it?
