An engaged anthropolgist, I have studied the dynamics of white supremacy & labor exploitation conditioning Latino migration to the U.S. South; efforts to strengthen intergroup relations & build cross-racial coalitions; & the logics, mechanics, & effects of non-federal immigrant policing in Atlanta.
I use the archaeological record to better understand contemporary problems such as human vulnerability to climate change and the sustainability of social and environmental systems. The past contains completed “experiments” in sustainability, resilience, and collapse that we can learn from.
I'm a medical and psychological anthropologist interested in people's experiences of illness, wellbeing, healing, and, in particular, the contextual factors that shape health. I'm a Lecturer in Anthropology at Macquarie University and I work on health and development projects in West Africa.
I am a medical anthropologist at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London working in the NHS to develop and carry out assessments of health. I currently work with artists on projects about cancer and about teddy bears. I have run projects on CSI & Forensics, witchcraft, & schizophrenia.
I'm a cultural anthropologist who has conducted research in Morocco since 1994. Much of my work has focused on women's changing roles in urban Moroccan society. My goals for my teaching and writing are to show that life in the Muslim world is much more complex and diverse than most people think.
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.
