Personal profile

Research overview

Fieldwork, Sawaieke, Gau, Fiji 1981-83, 1990, 1993, 2005, 2007. My area interests focus on Fiji and the Pacific, and Melanesia.


Research interests

My theoretical interests include: exchange processes; spatio-temporality as a dimension of human being; sociality, kinship and ideas of the person; the analysis of ritual; epistemology; ontogeny as an historical process. My work is informed by the idea that the primary duty of the anthropologist as analyst is to produce richly detailed ethnography that is able to throw light on the human condition, even while it deals with the historical specificity that is evinced in any given case.
