Zoanni headshotHi! I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology. My research focuses on politics, health, religion, kinship, aesthetics, personhood, and subjectivity, especially in East/Central and Indian Ocean Africa. I grew up on a farm in Montana, and studied in Chicago, Cambridge (Mass), and New York. My work appears in edited collections in Cambridge Anthropology and Somatosphere and other articles in Cultural AnthropologyMedical Anthropology, Ethos, Current History, and Anthropological Quarterly. I also make film. My first, The Ladies (Ukrainian with English subtitles), is an observational film about Ukrainian migrant women in NYC. It screened widely at international festivals and is distributed by DER.
