On May 1st 2018, I started my new role as Postdoctoral Early Career Researcher in the Department of Anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London. The team I am joining is part of an exciting, four-year global project addressing “gender and cultures of equality” through collaborative work between researchers and NGO/activist partners. The project is called GlobalGRACE [website under construction], and it launches officially on June 29 – join us for a reception if you’re in London!
My role over the course of the project will include both ethnographic research as well as a great deal of hands-on curation, which marks somewhat of a departure for me as a scholar while feeling like a natural progression given my work on creative, interactive, visual, and exhibiting projects over the years. I’m excited to see where it will lead.
I am also quite overjoyed to be living back in the UK after seven productive yet challenging years in the United States. I’m particularly grateful to the faculty, staff, and students at Georgetown University for their excellent company and support over two excellent years. I am sure I will miss teaching — but for now, on with the research!
