Elizabeth Chin's work spans a variety of topics–race, consumption, Barbie–but nearly always engages marginalized youth in collaboratively taking on the complexities of the world around them.  I have current projects in Los Angeles, Uganda, and Haiti and have engaged partners including the Los Angeles Police Department, numerous public schools, Jovenes, Inc. in Boyle Heights, and Lekòl Kominotè Matènwa in Haiti.  A specialist in Haitian Folkloric dance, I have performed professionally and still occasionally teach dance.  Taking writing very, very seriously, my work increasingly investigates the ethnographic voice with an eye toward decolonizing anthropological knowledge as it appears on the page.
