I'm happy to announce that I will be a Visiting Assistant Professor in Anthropology and the William S. Vaughn Visiting Fellow at the Warren Center for the Humanities at Vanderbilt University for the 2014 - 2015 academic year.
As a Visiting Fellow, I will participate in a seminar with the theme of "Public Scholarship in the Humanities." While there I will work with a cohort of faculty to address areas of interest and concern with regard to public scholarship in the humanities, such as: the gains and losses in making scholarship publicly accessible; the turn to digital humanities; preparing graduate students for an environment of public scholarship; knowledge production and dissemination; changing publics; and developing and sustaining a variety of partnerships in and out of academia.
In the coming year, I will focus on two projects in particular. The first is ethnographic research about contemporary visual arts and Caribbean diaspora. The second is theMapping Arts Project. I have been working on both of these during my year at Brown University, and I look forward to continuing this work at Vanderbilt.
Thank you all for your support of my work, and I look forward to sharing updates about the projects!
