I am assistant professor in anthropology at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and have a secondary appointment as assistant professor in psychiatry.
I joined Creighton for the Fall semester 2007 and teach mainly courses in medical anthropology, which studies the relation of culture and health.
|More about me:
I come from a small town in Tyrol, Austria. After high school I joined the Society of the Divine Word (SVD), a Catholic missionary congregation. After my ordination to the priesthood I worked for seven years as a missionary in Zimbabwe. Acknowledging the value of anthropology for missionary work I then went to study anthropology in Washington, DC, and Gainesville, FL. After graduating I worked as one of the editors of Anthropos in Germany.
In my free time I enjoy biking and hiking as well as reading novels
based on historic events. I also enjoy watching comedies in TV or
the movie theatre.
|Writing these reflections:
Scriptures and my faith
have guided me through my life. I would like to share some of my experiences
hoping that it might help others to discover the relevance of God's
Word for our day-to-day living.
