Open to all, with upcoming publication; this is an EWP project.
Photo Essays (in progress): 100 Countries: photo essays
Format: [Phase I, ongoing: onsite research] Phase II: (a) introductory photo essays; (b) in-depth articles (cultural, travel); (c) essays; and, (d) short stories. [Phase III: Outcomes, below.]
Based on: Dr Anne’s qualitative field research in 100+ countries
Design: Salient facts about the country and its dominant culture (as well as ethnic minority groups), classifications according to standard theories of cultural study (e.g., individualist vs collectivist), insights and observations, tips for better understanding. Accompanying photos selected according to their ability to “tell a story” – to reflect an important cultural feature (or several).

From Dr Anne: “Of particular importance to me is not only to learn about each culture from its own members and my direct experiences, but also to ‘connect the dots’ — to draw correlations, compare and contrast, gain ever-increasing understanding of these intertwined histories, and in so doing, to look at the greater picture: our shared humanity. I invite you to join me in this quest.”
