Eve Danziger

[Draft Bio]

Eve Danziger, Anthropology, draws on long-term fieldwork-based research into the language and culture of the Mopan (Mayan) people of Eastern Central America, to investigate the role of language in the construction of indigenous knowledge. Her publications include a particular focus on spatial conceptualization and cognition. At the broadest intellectual level, she asks how the categories of individual thought are shaped by those of socially shared but culturally particular convention and culture.
