Tiffany C. Fryer
Interview with The Familiar Strange Podcast
Tiffany Cain spoke to The Familiar Strange's Ian Pollock at the 2018 AAA Conference in San Jose about her work with the community of Tihosuco in Quintana Roo, Mexico. In this jam-packed episode, they discuss the cultural history of Tihosuco and how it has influenced and constructed the identities of people today, question how we do anthropology with people who are no longer alive, unpack the process of knowledge collection in an 'umbrella' heritage project, compare solo and team ethnography, and reflect on the attachment that researchers have to their fieldsites.
"A common misconception about archaeology is that we don't work with people who are alive."
