Kristi Rhead


Kristi Rhead is a Ph.D. Student in Anthropology and History at the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on media, identity, and public history/anthropology on the island of Réunion, located in the Southern Indian Ocean and fully administratively integrated into France and the European Union. As the Project Coordinator for ReCollect/ ReConnect, Kristi has been especially excited to make connections between French and US island empires and to work to build resources that communicate research to audiences beyond academia. Before becoming a Ph.D. student, Kristi received her M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Chicago and her B.A. in International Studies and French from Johns Hopkins University.
