PopAnth Author

Samuel is a budding anthropologist originally from Nashville, Tennessee, but he's called Montreal, Quebec home for better part of the last decade. Sam studied French and German at Concordia University in Montreal and is currently a graduate student of Anthropology at the University of Montreal.

As student-member the Laboratory for Research on Intercultural Relations, his research is interested in the organizational structure of community sector agencies that work with immigrant and refugee populations in highly diverse urban contexts. Some of Sam's main centers of interest are anthropological perspectives on behavioral economics, language politics, and the relationship between immigrants/refugees and their host societies.
