About me

Social anthropologist. Main focus on kinship and nature use. Have been doing extensive fieldwork throughout Central Asia since the beginning the 1990s.

Working at the moment on :

  • representations societies produce of their social organisation (in particular lineage based models)
  • Omaha and non-Omaha kinship terminologies in Inner and Northern Asia
  • rights on persons and commodities in a comparative perspective (with a focus on the history of slavery in Western Central Asia)
  • social uses of natural resources in Central Asian agro-pastoral communities
  • history of domestication and animal husbandry in Inner and Northern Asia

On going fieldworks in
  • Alay, Karategin, Darwaz, Badakhshan and Pamir plateaux
  • Khwarazm and Amu Delta
  • Western China

Can converse in English, French, German, Russsian, Persian (Tajik), Uzbek, Kirghiz (or Kazakh) and Turkish.

How very kind you are. To me, OAC is a very pleasant opportunity to share ideas with fellow anthropologists of all ages all around the world. With virtually no work whatsoever. This is a great improvement over having to produce hard copy and send it around!
