Department of Anthropology
David Lowry is interested in notions of intervention within the contours of American life. He is especially interested in intervention as it takes place in Native America and the U.S. South. He is currently researching and writing about responsibilities within the Lumbee Indian community that place Lumbee community members in global schemes of humanitarian aid and Christian conversion. He writes in the shadow of the hard fact that Native Americans remain largely insignificant within the political and economic conversations that define everyday life in the United States.
David's doctoral dissertation, completed in 2012 at UNC-Chapel Hill, is titled: "For the Healing of the Nations: Lumbee Indian Community, Christian Missions, and the Transformative Power of Intervention."
