I am a historical and archaeological anthropologist studying how people organized their societies and lived in the lower Mississippi Valley beginning thousands of years ago, from what they ate for dinner to the basis of power and social authority.
My ongoing work explores the interrelationships between performance, embodiment, gender, and identity, and I also research, presents, and write about visual ethics, theory, and method in social research.
I am an archaeologist and applied anthropologist doing community engaged research and teaching focused on cultural heritage studies. My work includes the application of place building theory to "living heritage" contexts both locally and internationally.
I work on two different linguistic anthropology research themes. In political discourse, I see how politicians, news media, and citizens interact through language. At the same time, I analyze identity and language learning-how learning new languages makes people think differently about who they are.
I am a cultural anthropologist with over 25 years fieldwork experience in rural Haiti. My research initially focused on land tenure and agroforestry, and now includes Haitian émigrés in the U.S. and Canada. I am a Professor of Anthropology at a Community College in N.J.
I am a trained archaeologist and museum specialist working as a cultural resource manager for the National Parks at the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. I manage historical, historic structures, cultural landscape, archaeological, anthropological, and ethnographic research for the park.
