Our guest this week is Dr. Courtney Helfrecht, assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alabama. Dr. Helfrecht chats with us about her path to bicultural anthropology and her work on adrenarche and alloparenting in sub-Saharan populations. She tells us about the importance of cooperation and what doing fieldwork far from home may teach us about ourselves.
