M. Jenna Musket

From 2004-2006, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Social Sciences at Philadelphia University where I have taught such courses as "The Changing Face of America", "Diversity and Commonality in American Lives", "Class, Gender and Race" and "Evil and Good." For the past several years, I have been working on a PhD in Anthropology at Temple University on issues of culture, history and power relative to differing "communties of practice." My work is largely informed by a framework of historical perspectives, ethnography of communication and anthropology of visual communications.
