About

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge (2005 - Present). I previously studied anthropology and philosophy at the University of Virginia (B.A. 2003).

My research investigates the contemporary political economy of the southern lowlands of New Guinea. I conducted 18 months of fieldwork (Sept 2006 - April 2008) with Marind speakers living in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. My dissertation focuses on the experiences of community leaders as they attempt to elicit and maintain productive relations across various global alliances, from regional ritual networks to relations with transnational corporations, NGOs and the state.

Hi Justin,

Interesting sounding research. I would like to know more. My degree was in social anthropology but I now work as a radio producer. My regional interest is really Japan and Korea but I am also quite eclectic. My good friend Mischa Wilmers has written about the political situation for indigenous peoples in West Papua (Indonesia).

Thanks Justin,

I am busy with my thesis and completing fieldwork. I must finish by december. Main focus is agency and autonomy in 2,000 inhabitants town. It is located in an area where many scholars studiesd the rural-urban continuum.

 

My long term interests are oral tradition and visual anthropology. By the way can any member suggest me where to look for either a doctorate or postdoctorate stay on these subjects?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Justin,

As you know my name is Andy. I am a first year Occupational therapy mature student at Southampton university UK. I am interested in  human behaviour and my subject is centred around the biopsychosocial model but i cant help thinking that anthropology also impacts on human occupation, that said i know nothing about anthropology but was really  interested in the material on the site.

Thank you sir.
I hope to learn, and contribute!
