LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | The Role of More than Humans in Making Chinese Society and History: Thinking With Elephants and Mushrooms
Michael Hathaway received his PhD in Anthropology from the University of Michigan in 2007, and shortly thereafter began teaching at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Vancouver, Canada. He is currently an Associate Professor, director of SFU's David Lam Centre for the Asia-Pacific, and the editor-in-chief of American Ethnologist (with Stacy Pigg). His award-winning first book, "Environmental Winds: Making the Global in Southwest China," was published in 2013 by the University of California Press. One of the three core members of the anthropological collaborative, the Matsutake Worlds Research Group, he has led research in China on the social worlds made through the creation of the wild matsutake mushroom economy. Anna Tsing's book, "The Mushroom at the End of the World" was the first book in the trilogy, and Michael has just completed the second volume.
