"Anthropology challenges me to appreciate the multitude of ways we engage with microbes and medicines in this world. I am a medical anthropologist examining antibiotic resistance and the use of antibiotics in the United States. The particular methods and theories of medical anthropology are essential to understanding the social, cultural, historical, and political overlays in the prescribing practices of hospital-based physicians. I am AAA."

"AAA is building new connections, reaching new audiences and publics, and exploring new ways of knowing. SLACA is at the forefront of this work, examining and transgressing boundaries and borders in

Latin America and the Caribbean. All these elements guide my research, scholarship, and teaching, and that is why I am AAA."

“I am AAA, as a cultural anthropologist specializing in craft economies in Mexico and as a former President of the Society for Latin American & Caribbean Anthropology. My section allows me to stay connected with an amazing group of anthropology colleagues who works throughout the region. Even through my home department is now Geography, AAA and SLACA keep me grounded in the field I love most.”

“I am AAA. I study the financial economy. In advanced market economies, finance is the hidden infrastructure of both seemingly impersonal domains, like the complex global economy, as well as our most intimate territories, like family life. My research examines how systems of credit, debt, and money management shape the problems we face, the way we think, how we treat each other and understand ourselves.”

“I am AAA. Economic anthropologists are not as easy to come by as one might have supposed. I study individuals in advanced economies who are not employers or employees but who operate non-employer businesses. I am happy to have found a place to share what I learn about the place these people carve out for themselves in late capitalist economies.”
