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 an applied medical anthropologist. I study how people experience and talk about health, illness, and the body. I want to know how this connects to the rest of their lives--for example, who individuals feel they are, and how they fit into the world around them.
I am a biological anthropologist, occassional biohistorian, and accidental egyptologist. I am interested in ancient health and disease, trauma, and human sacrifice, but not necessarily in that order. The MA in Classical Studies that I obtained along the way has prepared me for none of this.
MA Student at the University of West Florida. Research interests are academic misconduct, culture, and mythology.
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.
I'm currently going for my BA in Anthropology and I'm looking forward on getting my degree. I'm looking for more information and trying to see where I can start at getting into the field of Anthropology.
