6. Dr Kristina Baines on Cool Anthropology, and the Use of Embodied Ecological Heritage

By William Lucas

Season 1 Episode 6: Dr Kristina Baines on Cool Anthropology, and the Use of Embodied Ecological Heritage Recorded July 2, 2020 This next episode is with Dr Kristina Baines, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at City University of New York, at Guttman Community College. She is also an affiliated faculty at CUNY Graduate School of Public Health. In this conversation, we discuss her Anthropological perspective, including a framework she’s developed in her career called Embodied Ecological Heritage, which links everyday health with the heritage practices that take place in specific ecologies. We also discuss the several collaborative projects that she has going on at Cool Anthropology: a website she cofounded with her wife, Victoria Costa, which hosts a series of collaborative projects. We touch on a couple of them, including their Shifting Stereotypes Project, which is an interactive documentary that is set to release soon. We also talk about the Ethnography Matters Project, which can be thought of as a collaborative discussion about the use of ethnographic methods for all purposes, for people everywhere. The conversation starts with discussing how she applies an anthropological definition of health, especially right now during COVID-19. ----------------------------- Coo.
