Ethnographic Field School in Mexico

Todd Pierce and I am the Director at the Isla Mujeres Ethnographic Field School, shares information about upcoming summer field school opportunities:

“The Isla Mujeres Ethnographic Field School specializes in community based projects and trains students on how to conduct ethnographic research. Located on a small Mexican Caribbean island, much of the student research is focused on community needs per their request. Some of our current areas of interest: Culture & Environment, Latin America & Caribbean, Medical Anthropology, Gender & Identity, History, Space & Meaning and Economic Development. There is a wide variety of subjects to research. In the past, some students have conducted research on teenage pregnancy, HIV and Dengue Fever prevention, Catholic and Maya religion, Economic Development and tourism, Sea Turtle and Whale Shark conservation.”
