To: darwin-l@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu

I am Richard Wilk, a cultural anthropologist at Indiana University.
I was once a practicing archaeologist, working with Maya ruins in
Central America as well as at sites in Arizona, Spain and Israel.
I developed an interest in long-term cultural change, continuity
and discontinuity, alterity and identity. I practiced applied
anthropology for a time, working in public health, road construction,
water & sanitation, agricultural development & extension and
educational reform - mostly in Belize, where I have spent about
7 of the last 20 years. Now I find myself working on the
borderlands of economics, public culture and ethnohistory,
studying consumption and consumerism, household economics and
budgeting, and the ethics of practice.

I am not yet sure how my interests relate to those of other
people on this list.  At the moment it seems like a place to
ask some interesting questions and broaden my understandings.
