Join us in this first part of a special two part interview, as we discuss anthropology, anarchy and affluence with cultural anthropologist Dr David Boarder Giles.
He describes his work as naval gazing on the meta level. Broadly, anthropologists investigate what it means to be human. On a more specific level, cultural anthropologists cast their academic gaze on the foundations and practices of individual cultures. David’s work is focused on social, political and economic causes of poverty, food security and homelessness.
