Martin Schoenhals

Martin Schoenhals is a cultural anthropologist who has conducted fieldwork for more than three decades in China, and for nearly two decades in India. Among his interests are the way that culture and emotions interact. As a psychological anthropologist, Schoenhals has studied the role of face and shame in China, and how these emotions interact with political and historical processes. Another research interest is facial expressions and the key question of whether humans can read each other's emotions across the divisions of culture. Schoenhals has taught at such universities as Columbia University, Swarthmore College, and the University of Pennsylvania. He has recently moved from New York City and has made his new home in the mountains of Boone.
