Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

Possible future publication

Publications are part of the deal when accepting a tenored position at a uni. It is expected one will complete research and then-PUBLISH. :) Well, many undergrads are not offered the opportunity to publish and I have been and I am super thrilled about it!

I am a second author for an article in an online journal based out of the UK focused on archaeology. My portion discussed authenticity in the tourism sector specifically related to Orange County, Florida; it connected the past tourism with the present.

The changes the editor wanted my mentor to make were out of his expertise per se; they related to cultural anthropology basically. I spent 3 solid days pouring over books and journals in addition to utilizing my knowledge about tourism to make this happen.

Obviously, I will post it for all to see once it is in press. :)
