Brigittine M. French
Ethnographer and anthropologist Brigittine French mobilizes new critical-theoretical perspectives in linguistic anthropology, applying them to the politically-charged context of contemporary Guatemala. French shows, with useful examples, how constructions of language and collective identity are, in fact, strategies undertaken to serve the goals of institutions and social actors.
An Introduction to the Profession of Anthropology
Anthropological Lives introduces readers to what it is like to be a professional anthropologist. It focuses on the work they do, the passions they have, the way that being an anthropologist affects the kind of life they lead. The book draws heavily on the experiences of twenty anthropologists interviewed by Virginia R. Dominguez and Brigittine M. French, as well as on the experiences of the two coauthors.
