Anthropology is a great way to learn about different perspectives and ways of life, and can help you understand your own culture better. I am interested in collaborative anthropology, museum anthropology, material culture and memoir/biography. My fieldwork takes place in Vietnam.
I am a Ph.D student at University of California, Riverside. I am currently conducting fieldwork with Sherpas, the Himalayan guides in Nepal, as they climb highest mountains. It's tough to climb and live with them up on the Himalayas, but amazingly fruitful and fun.
Social, development & business anthropologist in the public sector. Research methods professor at FCNyM-UNLP. Entrepreunership & local development public policies. Most of all I love computer assisted qualitative analysis.
I am a research fellow at Durham University working on history, economy and temporality in Thessaly, central Greece. My current research project focuses on renewable energy and sustainable economy in the southern Balkans (especially photovoltaics).
I am a cultural anthropologist in the final stages of my doctoral program at the University of Michigan. I study a subculture of gay men in the northern areas of Chicago known as kinksters, their social organization, perceptions of cultural death and practices of cultural revitalization.
I am Director of the MS in Applied Anthropology program at Missouri State University. My 40 years of research in Jamaica has included studies of religion, healing and mental health and, more recently, community development projects on tourism, fishing, coastal conservation and historic preservation.
