Kate Crehan has conducted extensive fieldwork in Zambia.
She has also carried out fieldwork in Britain. Among the issues she works
on are gender, social differentiation and 'development'. Running through
all her work is a concern with the issue of power, and the ways in which
it is materially and discursively grounded. She has recently published
a book on Gramsci and anthropology.
