Digital reflections on an anthropologist’s journey to Kunming, China

In November 2009, Kansas anthropologist Linda Davis-Stephens traveled to Kunming, China. Kunming is located in southeastern China, just north of Laos and Vietnam. Linda created and posted to YouTube a 4.5 minute video of reflections and images from her amazing trip. The conference where she presented had 4000 attendees from around East and Southeast Asia.

Dr. Davis-Stephens’ contact information at Colby Community College is available on the paper she published: “El Cuartelejo: High Plains Laws and Identity — Service Learning the History of a Bioregion.” It was a delight to meet her today and discuss the possible ways Storychasers / digital storytelling can intersect with work she’s been doing for years with oral histories, anthropology on the high plains, etc.
