Welcome! My name is Kat Richter and I’m a Philadelphia-based writer, dancer and adjunct instructor in anthropology. I started writing Fieldwork in Stilettos in 2010 just after I finished my MA in Dance Anthropology. Given that said degree did not present the most obvious route to gainful employment, I found myself working retail, teaching, traveling abroad, conducting a rather questionable “manthropological” experiment. I’ve since traded serial dating for The Wedding Date, (my now ex-boyfriend, about whom I promise I’ll eventually stop writing), The Lady Hoofers (my dance company) and a bevy of undergraduate students who keep me on my toes.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment— I love a good debate!
