A pinpoint is not enough to illustrate on this map the spaces and places where our research ends up taking us. Indeed, much of our research happens on the move, or beneath the surface: The world of anthropology cannot possibly be rendered as a blip on the map. We therefore hope you treat these pinpoints as starting points and the map as a mere representation of our three-dimensional geographical foci.
