Lisa Gezon

Dr. Lisa Gezon is Professor of Anthropology at the University of West Georgia specializing in cultural anthropology. Her areas of research are in health and environment, with a focus on sustainability and social justice. Her initial research in Madagascar focused on conservation and development, and later, she studied the cultural politics of the drug khat, which is a leaf that people chew for a mild stimulant effect. She is currently writing a co-authored book to be called Anthropology of Drugs. She was raised in western Michigan in the Christian Reformed Church, and she raised her children as Episcopalians. She pursued her career in anthropology in part because of her interest in the wide varieties of ways that we as humans experience spirituality.
