A community college instructor, I'm best known for my Master's thesis on drag kings (laurenhasten.com/genderpretenders.htm), my efforts in promoting the teaching of anthropology (youtube.com/watch?v=sMFsgPy1H5M) and my attempts at teaching through music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrcK0tGTrQ8).
I am currently a graduate student in the Anthropology Department at Northern Arizona University. My primary focus of study is Linguistic Anthropology, specifically literacy as a social practice. My thesis research involves the study of conversations that occur in bathroom stall through graffiti.
I received my Ph.D. in Anthropology and Education. My current research is about the seminarian (howzevi) women of Iran, looking at how they constitute and reconstitute their paths to the howzeh (seminary) education. I'm interested in the intersection between Islamic education, women and the state.
Historical linguists examine the history of individual languages and their interrelationships with other languages. My area of focus is the Indo-European language family, especially the Germanic branch, and my dissertation involves the Gothic translation of the Greek New Testament (from c. 350).
My research is focused in Pleistocene sites of the Western Hemisphere (the Americas). I investigate archaeology sites which are older than 12,000 years before present in both North and South America. I am a graduate student at Binghamton University in New York State and a member of the Early Humans
I am a social anthropologist currently researching pregnant embodiment in urban Chiapas, Mexico and female subjectivities in transition to motherhood. My passions are gender, reproductive health issues and political economy of everything!
