Welcome to my new blog!
Why did I make it, you ask?- Well, I spend a lot of time doing anthropology, reading, thinking about politics and philosophy, and I think I have interesting things to say about it.
Should you care?- That’s up to you!
What can you expect?- Book and movie reviews, insights, essays, and the like.

I'm Adam Johnson, an environmental anthropologist teaching at University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Northwest Vista College while completing my Ph.D. at UTSA after teaching as a lecturer at UNCC for 3 years.
My work engages human-animal relations. I am interested in how humans and wild animals find ways to get along. The focus of my research are the intimate moments of encounter between humans and wild animals. My current project explores human-javelina relations in Texas, including: affective relationships between javelinas and property owners, tourist-javelina encounters at Big Bend National Park, and the intimacy and care that pairs with violence in hunting.
I'm also interested in Science and Technology Studies, sexuality and gender, and primate behavior and ecology.
