Research Interests: My work focuses on the anthropology of emotion in a variety of geographical and historical contexts. From investigating practices of mourning and grief in Azerbaijan to analyzing the delight and terror of homeplace in Antebellum Virginia, I view emotion as a story -- a narrative told about self and society, as well as a discourse about interpersonal connections.
