Welcome to ‘Anthropology, Mongolia and more….,’ which started out as a working title, and just kind of stuck. After 10 years (the site was launched in October, 2004), I’ve decided it is time for a long-overdue update. In doing so I’ve also shifted from my old, hand-coded site to WordPress, since I don’t have as much time to work on such things as I once did.
What you’ll find in the Mongolia-related portions of the site are based on my experience with and in Mongolia since about 1990. Since 1991, I’ve spent over five years in Mongolia conducting research, teaching, and giving seminars, lectures and workshops. In other words, I’m drawing upon extensive first-hand experience, not to mention tons and tons of reading and discussion with colleagues. But I also draw on my training and career as an anthropologist. (Check out the ‘Academics’ section for more on what it is we anthropologists actually do…)
