Ep#106: MeTooAnthro and the Witch Hunt trope

Trigger Warning: Please note that this episode makes mention of Sexual Assault and sexual violence.

In this episode we walk about MeToo anthropology from the lens of fieldwork and within the academy itself. 

Familiar Stranger Emma Quilty sat down with anthropologists Holly Walters and Margaret Czerwienski to talk about the MeToo collective and its incredible array of resources as well as what it means to do activist work within the academy. 

We also covered the prevalence of the witch hunt trope so often leveraged against those who make accusations against powerful individuals and institutions. Are MeToo accusations modern day witch hunts? Listen to find out.
