Greg Beckett is a cultural anthropologist with over twenty years experience researching Haitian history, society, culture, and politics. His work focuses on how residents of Port-au-Prince make sense of political crisis, how they “look for life” amid difficult circumstances, and how they think about their country’s past and imagine its possible future(s). He is currently conducting research on blackouts and the energy crisis, lockdowns and political protests, and the blockading of critical infrastructure by armed gangs.
