About John Fox

I am an anthropologist and writer with experience ranging across disciplines and sectors, from academia to journalism and advertising. I received my B.A. from Boston University and M.A. and Ph.D. in anthropology from Harvard University. As an academic anthropologist, I conducted field research in Latin America and held teaching positions at Boston University and Harvard University before leaving mainstream academia. I produced and led award-winning educational expeditions on six continents joined online by K-12 students across the US and in 120 countries. I am currently finishing a book for HarperCollins (Summer, 2012) on the cultural and historical roots of the games we play today.
