A graduate student in the Department of Geography at Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada), I am currently working on my Master’s Thesis, “Sounds Like Resistance: Spectrum Deregulation and Indigenous Community Radio in Guatemala” (to be defended in Spring 2008). Identifying tensions both within and between landscape and soundscape, I consider the ways in which community radio articulates indigenous resistance to domestic and international hegemonies. I examine community radio both as an act of accession (strengthening Maya linguistic and cultural autonomy) and as an act of subversion (undermining dominant economic and political structures). In addition, I explore how the discourse of ‘community’ may be used to remap socio-spatial boundaries and (un)settle power relations at differing scales.

I am currently writing a book on the anthropology of tour guiding and researching the complex (dis)connections between tourism imaginaries and ideas of transcultural migration (with ethnographic fieldwork in Indonesia, Tanzania, Chile, and Belgium).
