Mackenzie Cramblit

My research and writing are motivated by questions of intimacy, care, and value, particularly in relation to rural places and the human and nonhuman collectives that inhabit them. As a teacher and mentor, I compassionately challenge students to reflect on their own positioning in the world, and to see knowledge as embedded and embodied in particular space-times.  I believe that in inviting reflection on the value of life itself, anthropology gives us critical tools to create worlds we want to live in.
