About Me

I am a second year anthropology MA student at the George Washington University, with a concentration in international development. My regional focus is in francophone West Africa, particularly Senegal, and I am interested in displacement, nationalism, education, and the anthropology of children. This summer I will be conducting field work in Senegal with a local NGO for 8 weeks.


Currently I am looking at PhD programs in the US and Europe with africanist faculty interested in development, displacement, or childhood, (broadly defined), and I'm always interested in hearing feedback from colleagues.

And although I am a cultural anthropologist, I do have a great appreciation for the way in which he revolutionized the field of archaeology.


Here is his obituary:…
