Charles Caroll

I am an ethnographer with prior training and work experience in both teaching and educational television production. I employ and teach the use of tools and techniques of visual anthropology for social science research. Over the past decade I have employed sociocultural research methodologies to examine and document various social practices of education, political-economic change and cultural transformation in the United States, Thailand and the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
