Current Teaching Team

Amir Shiva is a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology specializing in media anthropology and digital ethnography. He has taught courses in anthropological methods and theory. Amir is interested in digital media practices and focuses on how people change in the process of media-making and media-receiving.

Tom Kemple is interested in how the classroom can be a fieldsite in its own right: how is the university classroom already a part of the world, and how can we expand the study of theories and methods to include experiential learning and service learning in a variety of institutional and everyday settings? He is former Chair of the Arts One and Coordinated Arts Programs, and often teaches a Global Seminar in Guatemala. Dr. Kemple co-taught the Field School in 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2019.
