I went into Anthro because: I engaged in intensive immersed ethnographic fieldwork in Nubia which made me realize there is no other field and no other methodology that better understands humankind.

My latest research is: suckling kinship

My favorite text is: By Noon Prayer

My advice to potential anthropologists is: Engage in intensive fieldwork and you will appreciate anthropology
