Roxana Wales, recently retired, is a respected corporate ethnographer and research scientist. She was one of the first anthropologists to begin working on corporate ethnographic projects and she has many great stories to tell.

Chandler Zausner is an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, where he is pursuing a double major at The School of Cinematic Arts (media arts and practice, ‘20) and USC Dornsife (visual anthropology, ‘20). He is interested in documenting unique, marginalized, and disenfranchised communities and recently traveled to Japan for his first international research project on hikkikomori, a culture-bound syndrome of extreme social withdrawal. This is Chandler’s reflection on some of the challenges he faced.
