#50 An Anthropology of Universities: Jodie Trembath on Selling Academia

Released Sunday, 10th November 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
This episode, Kylie interviews a very familiar guest ... Dr Jodie-Lee Trembath (aka Jodie from TFS)! Now, Jodie's no stranger to qualifications, but this year she completed her PhD - which is a MAMMOTH achievement - so we thought it was about time to pick her brain to understand more about universities and fieldwork. They start off by discussing Jodie's research in Vietnam, about 'authenticity' and the perpetuation of an authentic image, about the navigation of being both an 'insider' and an 'outsider' in the field, and finally they talk about us - that is, The Familiar Strange project.

This is also Kylie's first interview on TFS!

"Is this food authentic? Well, that depends on whether YOU think that authentic food needs to be from a particular place, whether it needs to have a particular flavour, have specific ingredients that come from a particular place? If you don't think all of those things are necessary for authenticity, then you might think that a particular food is perfectly authentic, and vice versa."
