Sept. 2010, Anthropology Welcomes New Lecturer
Edgar Martín del Campo is a cultural anthropologist whose interests include religion, ethnicity, grammar, and sociolinguistics in modern Mesoamerica. He received bachelor's degrees in biochemistry, biology, and religion from Rice University in 1996 and a master's degree in religion from Claremont School of Theology in 2000. He received his doctorate in anthropology from the University at Albany in 2006 after fulfilling his dissertation, on the religious, ethnic, and political discourses shaping modern vocabularies of the supernatural in the Nahua and Otomí languages of northern Veracruz, Mexico. He is presently completing a memoir on his spiritual encounters during that research season.
