About Me

My name is Sydney Yeager. I am cultural anthropologist and an ABD PhD candidate at SMU (Southern Methodist University) PhD program.  My primary research interested are focused in digital anthropology and medical anthropology.  In particular, I plan to conduct my PhD dissertation research on emerging grieving practices in digital spaces, with particular focus on Facebook, and their impact on participants’ lives and social well-being.  Additionally, my medical interests are in the areas of neuroanthropology, consciousness, biocultural medical anthropology, and social well-being.  I am interested in the anthropological study of friendship, community, and religion as well.  More broadly speaking, my research interests include folk healing, spirituality, identity, consciousness, communitias, the processes of acculturation, education, community, cultural change, and the impact of our increasingly digitalized social lives.

I am  on the Executive Board of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness.  I serve as SAC’s first Media & Social Media Chair beginning in November.  Check out SAC’s blog here and our website here.  SAC has a nice Twitter and Facebook following as well.

I have also recently taken over the responsibility of convener for the AAA’s new Digital Anthropology Interest Group, fondly known as DANG.  I occasionally write for their blog and DANG’s G+, Facebook accounts.
