REGIONAL FOCUS

RESEARCH AND TEACHING INTERESTS

Medical Anthropology, Environmental Anthropology, Grassroots Development, Water Control Systems, Anthropology and Education, Identity Politics, Intergroup Relations, Queer Anthropology, and Visual Anthropology.  

Since 1993, I have been carrying out research on the political and cultural aspects of installing and managing drinking water systems in Mexican communities. I have also carried out shorter research projects on water issues along the U.S.-Mexico border and on cultural aspects of health and healing in the U.S. My publications, conference papers, and current research interests focus on the cultural and political aspects of international health and environmental issues, particularly regarding grass-roots development in Latin America. More recently, I have been carrying out projects on sophomore experiences, gender and sexuality, and queer anthropology. I am a participating faculty member of Skidmore's interdisciplinary programs in Environmental Studies, Gender Studies, Intergroup Relations, International Affairs, and Latin American Studies.
