Nathan Montgomery
Biography: Growing up in a family that was frequently on the move, styling myself the "little anthropologist" became my hobby at a very young age. Subsequent and extensive perusals of my father's collection of National Geographic magazines sealed my fate. After spending significant time in Spain, Brazil, Mexico and obtaining a BA focusing on old Iberian epics, I decided it was time to fill in the gaps on the other side of the world and moved to China. Four years and two languages later I received a fellowship for graduate research in Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University Bloomington, where I am currently.
