Introduction: I’m an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Yale University. My doctoral research in sociocultural anthropology has been on sign language, identity, civil society, and minority social movements in modern Japan. At Yale, I teach courses on queer ethnography, disability and culture, Japan Studies, and visual and applied anthropology.
I run Photoethnography.com as a not-for-profit service for the broader community:
