Research - Belize

Douglas Hume and Antonio Novelo with Field School Participants in San Antonio, Belize, 2015

I have been conducting applied ethnographic research northern Belize since 2012 and plan to return every summer with the Ethnographic Field School in Belize that I direct as part of the Center for Applied Anthropology at Northern Kentucky University.  In addition to the publications listed below, visit the official Ethnographic Field School in Belize website for images, movies, presentations, and more!
