Curriculum Vitae



Professor Gershon writes and teaches about anthropology of democracy, multiculturalism and ethnographies of new media in the United States, Oceania, and New Zealand. In The Break-Up 2.0 I analyze an ethically charged practice: how people use new media in romantic break-ups. I am currently researching how new media are affecting hiring and firing in the U.S. recession workplace.

My previous work explored why Samoan migrants experience different ways of being culture bearers in New Zealand and the United States.
