What does anthropology sound like: Poetry, October 27, 2020 – Society for Cultural Anthropology Anthropod podcast interview

Cory-Alice André-Johnson, contributing editor for the Society for Cultural Anthropology’s podcast Anthropod interviewed me about ethnographic poetry. Drawing from John Berger, Ocean Vuong, and Nathalie Diaz, I discuss my idea of poetry as a form of accompaniment for the storyteller/survivor/witness. In response to Cory-Alice’s questions about style and method, I focus on three of my poems that received the first place award from the Society for Humanistic Anthropology.
