About Krista M. Harper

I am an applied cultural anthropologist who investigates urban mobilizations, environment, food, and social justice, and, most recently, university libraries. I use ethnographic and participatory visual and digital research methods, with projects in Hungary, Portugal, and the United States. I am the PI (with Jacqueline Urla) of two NSF research and training grants, "Culture and Heritage in European Societies and Spaces" (NSF-OISE #0968575 and IIA-1261172).
