The Anthropology of Hair

May at 1st seem banal, but hair as extension of the self; the processes associated with 'doing' hair; its many colours & textures; lengths & locations; its 'natural' and 'non-natural' forms, make hair a fascinating object of anthropological enquirySee More

yes you have the nail on the head... im am seeking to understand what it means to be a man in a caribbean family - fairly straightforward stuff but seriously undertheorised and inadequately represented 

if you inbox me your email i can send you a copy of the undergrad thesis that eventually came of the group on hair... thanks its nice to have someone appreciate the significance of hair - esp for new world afro peoples and their descendents

my sister was on the river lea/lee (not sure how to spell)... the folks on the river are quite a tight nit community - but very open from my experience if they know you... i gues being quite exposed next to toe paths maybe leads them to not trust people right away.. let me know if you are doing any follow up stuff there and want to get in contact ill pass on some info

sorry for rushed email, have been up all night typing notes after a hectic day of interesting conversatons about family history ... need to go to bed:)

keep in touch

hi tracey i just checked out yur vimeo page when doing some research to find out who had added me... yur visual anth video looks fascinating... im currently doing fieldwork on male kinship experience in the caribbean but my sister lives on a boat in the part of london where you worked and i have always been interested by the the way that the transformation of space in their area has pressed often uncomfortably against their lives - poignant research!
