Cultural anthropologist Adrie Kusserow illuminates her research by sharing poems from her latest manuscript, Ethnography of a Feverish World. Kusserow focuses on refugees and the globalizing spread of Western ideals and considers how the environments we evolved to inhabit can be a mismatch for new technologies.
