Off the Beaten Track Field School by
Expeditions—Research in Applied Anthropology
During July - August 2019, I spent 1-month in Xlendi and Xagħra districts of Gozo island in Malta. I was among the 12 participants of “Off the Beaten Track Field School”, an international anthropology summer school that is held annually on the island of Gozo in Malta. During my 1-month stay, I had the opportunity to conduct ethnographic explorations of the island, its inhabitants, human and nonhuman, and Gozitan customs, and discuss my observations with ethnographers with prior experience on conducting ethnographic research on the island. Below are photographs documenting my interest in nonhuman animal life on the island that informs how the island is regulated and designed.
