About Me

I maintain a pseudoanonymous blog known as Teaching Anthropology.

I received my Ph.D. in Anthropology from Northwestern University in 1992 based on fieldwork I conducted in 1986-1987 in Tanzania. In 1994 I returned to Tanzania and worked as a consultant for USAID, International Red Cross, and Family Health International, as well as the Tanzanian Ministry for Health. I conducted a rapid assessment survey of HIV/AIDS orphans in Tanzania. Since that time, I have been teaching at a Community College in the greater Houston area and raising my daughter. I have a few published articles on both fieldwork /research experiences, including:

1996. "'We Don't Want Terraces!': Protest & identity Under The Uluguru Land Usage Scheme," in Custodians of the Land: Ecology & Culture in the History of Tanzania. Edited by Maddox, Gregory, Giblin, James Leonard, and Kimambo, Isaria N., pp. 152-170. LondonAthens: James Curry ;Ohio University Press.
1997. " Using rapid research to develop a national strategy to assist families affected by AIDS in Tanzania", in HEALTH TRANSITION REVIEW. 1997;7 Suppl:393-420.
2002. " Eliasa and the Kwacha Video Coach" in Personal Encounters: A Reader in Cultural Anthropology, Walbridge and Sievert, McGraw-Hill

From the titles you can deduce my interest areas and, should you require it, my real name.
