A question or two

How do people enact social change at the intersection of state power and neglect? My research and writing in the academy and beyond, examines material culture, embodied practice, and visual representations mobilized to transform individual lives and society at large.

Through work with Sámi communities in Fenno Scandinavia, Christian hunters in East Africa, migrant street sellers in the Mediterranean, and anthropologists in our own departments, I seek to understand the everyday, often hidden acts, that exist in the shadows of practice.
