Research in Pain

Sally Campbell Galman is an artist, associate professor of child and family studies at UMass Amherst, and editor of Anthropology and Education Quarterly.

Correction: The article in the Anthropology News print magazine 58(3): 14–17, misidentifies Sally Campbell Galman as a professor of anthropology. She is, in fact, a professor of child and family studies at UMass Amherst.

Comments

Such a perfect medium for communicating about our lived experiences as researchers (easily accessible, inverting the traditional authority structures, etc). Not to mention a great “story.”

Sally,

This is beautiful, chilling, tender, and gripping to read. I work with Safe Zones on my campus and am doing some research with a colleague on non-binary and trans students. Thank you for sharing your emotional responses publicly in an academic venue. We write, but we also feel. Sharing widely.

I sent this on to a friend here in Maine who is a trans parent, and she immediately sent it on to others. It is exactly the medium I have wanted to find in our journals. I shivered as I read it. You really touched a nerve that needed touching.
