Producer and Host: Abigail Adler

Guest: Paul Ryer

When Paul Ryer was an eleven year old kid growing up in Pennsylvania, his parents decided to give up their life in the U.S. and buy a sail boat. With their parents, Ryer  and his sister sailed around the Carribean for nearly 4 years- and those turned out to be formative years.

Today, Paul Ryer is an anthropologist and author of numerous academic articles. His new book, BEYOND CUBAN WATERS:AFRICA, LA YUMA AND THE ISLAND'S GLOBAL IMAGINATION. is the result of many years spent living in and studying the culture of the Carribean.  During part of that time, he has been affiliated with the University of Havana. 

Ryer has a bachelors in anthropology from Amherst college and PhD in cultural anthropology from University of Chicago. He is currently Director of Scholar Programs at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe. Known locally as SAR, the organization is the premier anthropological program in the country.  Among other things, Ryer is charged with  recruiting 6 scholars each year to write books on their field of expertise.
