I am a bioarchaeologist studying the relationship between diet, health, and identity in the Bronze Age. I am currently working with a skeletal collection from northern Serbia. My research combines multiple lines of evidence - physical, chemical, and micro - in reconstructing life in the past.
I am an applied anthropologist and ethnographer. I generally work with Native American tribes. I study fisheries, subsistence, and traditional cultural properties. I am most passionate about the retention and transmission of cultural practices, including language.
NGUYEN Phuc Anh is lecturer at Vietnam National University. He currently studies for a PhD in anthropology at Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan. His current research interests include anthropology of nationalism, politics of identity, governmentality and neoliberalism in Vietnam.
I am an applied archaeologist, who is passionate about public education & preservation of the past. My current research is collaborative with Tribal & local governments to study & preserve culturally significant sites in Michigan.
I research the cultures of video games, game designers, American militarism, and how labor plays into all of these things. I am writing a book on the US Army's official video game, America's Army, and am hoping to begin new research on digital game labor and the interactive entertainment industry.
I am a biological anthropologist who studies ancient skeletons for signs of poor health and trauma in order to understand who within any group is most at risk for illness, death and interpersonal violence. These data are important for seeing broad patterns that shed light on today's use of violence.
