Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Franklin and Marshall College. I earned my Ph.D. at New York University, where I also received a Graduate Certificate from the Program in Culture and Media. My research explores how Kanak youth imagine the meaning of indigenous identity and stake cultural and political claims on the future in New Caledonia (currently a sui generis overseas territory of France). More broadly, I am interested in cultural change and social movements, settler colonialism, race, citizenship, theories of representation and media. I also like cheese, running occasional marathons and playing trombone. Here you can find information on my research, publications, teaching, films and other a few other things.
