Kristina Baines is an Assistant Professor at CUNY, Guttman CC.

She’s been formally trained in applied, sociocultural, ecological and medical anthropology at Florida Atlantic University (BA, MA), the University of Oxford (MSc) and the University of South Florida (PhD). Her interests include environment + health intersections, ecological heritage, phenomenology and educational anthropology. She has conducted research in Belize, Guatemala, Peru and South Florida.

Victoria Costa is usually found considering potential trajectories for cool, critical thoughts about the world and our everyday lives. She (co)founded, a web and print promotion company, so that she could enable creative folks to disseminate, and monetize, their grand ideas. She was endorsed as an Honorary Anthropologist at a restaurant by the Med Anths in Oxford several years ago, has attended countless anthropological meetings and conferences and is stoked to enable so many brilliant anthropologists to re/consider how ideas are translated and released unto the world. She strongly believes that information must be free for consideration and utilization beyond the closed circuits of our niche communities.
