“On the Ground in Bamako”: My Interview With An Anthropologist

I spoke with anthropologist Bruce Whitehouse about being in Mali during the military coup that occurred this spring, and what it was like to become a correspondent for the media.

For Construction magazine:

“On his blog, Bridges From Bamako, Whitehouse documented not only snippets of his research findings, but also observations of daily life in Bamako during the pandemonium and thoughts about how Bamakois were responding to the coup. The blog began attracting the attention of journalists who were covering the turmoil in Bamako from afar. Soon, Whitehouse was giving interviews to Time magazine, the New York Times, the blog Africa Is A Country, and other media outlets.”
