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 boyfriend), The Lady Hoofers (my dance company) and a bevy of undergraduate students who have finally convinced me that its time to go back to school and get my PhD. (More on that later…)
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment— I love a good debate!
