Shannon comes to us from Sub-Saharan Africa, where she conducted medical and environmental anthropology research in Kenya, Zambia and Madagascar and agroforestry and HIV/AIDS education extension work with the Peace Corps in Cameroon. Her dissertation topic concerns the social life of wild animal meat (i.e., bushmeat) in Yaounde, Cameroon (West-Central Africa). Through a unique combination of discourse analysis and ego-network analysis, her research will explore the symbolic meaning and the costs and benefits associated with the consumption and trading of different Central African forest animal species in an urban Central African context.
