I’m Alexandra Lippman, an anthropologist researching creative uses of technology, alternative intellectual property, sound studies, and funk carioca in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This blog will give you a peek into my fieldwork experiences and adventures in writing up.

My research in Brazil (2011-2012) was funded in part by the National Science Foundation. This material is based upon work supported by the NSF under Grant No. 1058768.
