Presentation: "The Anthropology of Lies"

I am an anthropologist committed to ethnographic fieldwork as a method and as a way to approach and extend theories about interaction, social life and subjective understanding. I have conducted fieldwork in Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Sweden, Denmark and Italy. My writing addresses topics such as the language socialization of children, language death, the anthropology of literacy, indigenous forms of Christianity, reflexive epistemology, prostitution, queer theory, transgender, language and sexuality, fat, and ethics and disability.
