Emma Kroon: What kind of anthropologist do I aspire to be?

As part of the course 'Anthropology and Morality', students had to create a (m)oral narrative, using visual aids to accentuate their story and its anthropological analysis.  Emma Kroon, the student behind the video, had this to say about the process:

 

"The course Anthropology and Morality proved to be a big moment of self-reflection for me, which resulted in the necessary mental rollercoasters. It was difficult to get the materials out of my head after the seminars; it would lead to many discussions with my roommates over dinner or drinks. When I started thinking about the subject I wanted to talk about for my narrative, I was quickly lead to my gap year in Australia and the problematic visit in Southeast Asia. I have really enjoyed making this assignment. It was very inspiring, but also confronting, to look at this moment in my life with an anthropological gaze!"
