Next week is the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association! There are so many great papers and sessions, many of them through the Council for the Anthropology of Education. I’ll also be there, talking about art and method and hope in my paper/performance, “Not a mirror, but an icon: Ethnographic comic art in three acts.” This paper focuses on my ethnographic work with communities of transgender and other gender diverse children and their families. For those of you who witnessed our collective devastation and mourning at last year’s AAAs, I’m picking up the thread of resilience, resistance and the real power of doing creative good in evil times.
Or just come for the comedy as I try to draw and talk at the same time! 🙂
