Scholars and Storytelling: Sienna R. Craig
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Sienna R. Craig, Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Dartmouth College, will speak about her current book project, The Ends of Kinship: Care and Belonging between Nepal and New York City. This ethnography asks how individuals, families, and communities navigate lives within and between the Himalayan region of Mustang, Nepal, and the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York. This talk will focus on questions of method and why she’s chosen to interweave fictional short stories with narrative ethnography. What does fiction offer ethnography? What can ethnography offer fiction?
