Instructor Information: Leslie Berry
For that last two decades I've divided time between academic interests and
professional research. My background includes degrees in Anthropology and
Education, with emphasis in Instructional Technology and Cross-Cultural Language
and Development. My fieldwork focus includes socio-cultural and archaeological
contexts, NAGPRA legislation, cultural conservancy, prehistoric art, osteological
labwork, and faunal analysis. In recent years I've recorded and documented
folklore in the Pacific Northwest, with an emphasis on multi-generational
immigrant experience within families, oral tradition and kinship structures.
