Dr Charlie Rumsby


Lecturer in Childhood and Youth, University of Sussex, United Kingdom



I am committed to pursuing a practice of public anthropology: socially relevant, theoretically informed, and politically engaged ethnographic scholarship that is accessible to research participants, and for audiences outside the academy. Interdisciplinary and non-academic collaborations are central to this endeavour.
