Here is some good news from a former student at the University of Dar Es Salaam:
“My daughter is growing up, she is now 9 years, though still not able to walk, sit, or talk, It is a very hard task but I am happy to be her mother and she is still my inspiration.
“On top of all that, at last I have been able to meet a man who have decided to spend his life with us, I had problems with men accepting my kid, but this time it seems different and I hope all goes well. We are working together and teach same area, and we will be getting married this month on the 29th, 2010.”
Tony Waters is czar and editor of Ethnography.com. He came to us from the Sociology department at California State University at Chico where he has been a professor since 1996. In 2016 though he suddenly found himself with a new gig at Payap University in northern Thailand where he is on the faculty of the Peace Studies Department. He has also been a guest professor in Germany, and Tanzania. In the past, his main interests have been international development and refugees in Thailand, Tanzania, and California. This reflects a former career in the Peace Corps (Thailand), and refugee camps (Thailand and Tanzania). His books include: Crime and Immigrant Youth (1999), Bureaucratizing the Good Samaritan (2001), The Persistence of Subsistence Agriculture: Life Beneath of the Marketplace (2007), When Killing is a Crime (2007), and Schooling, Bureaucracy, and Childhood: Bureaucratizing the Child (2012). His hobby is trying to learn strange languages–and the mistakes that that implies.
