About the Author:

Karen B. Strier is Vilas Professor and Irven DeVore Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  After graduating from Swarthmore College in 1980, she received her MA and Ph.D. in Anthropology from Harvard University in 1981 and 1986, respectively.  She is an international authority on the endangered northern muriqui monkey, which she has been studying in the Brazilian Atlantic forest since 1982.  Her pioneering research has been critical to conservation efforts on behalf of this species, and has been influential in broadening comparative perspectives on primate behavioral and ecological diversity.  Her contributions have been recognized by her election as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and as a member of both the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  She is the recipient of an Honorary Degree (Doctorate of Science) from the University of Chicago and the Distinguished Primatologist Awards from both the American Primatological Society and the Midwestern Primate Interest Group.  She has received various awards from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, including the Graduate School’s faculty research awards series, a Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award, and a Hilldale Award for Excellence in Research, Teaching, and Service.  She has also been honored with a Lifetime Honorary Membership to the Brazilian Primatological Society.  Before joining the faculty at UW-Madison in 1989, she was a Lecturer in Anthropology at Harvard University and an assistant professor at Beloit College.  She has served as an elected member and officer on the executive committees of professional societies and on the editorial boards of major journals in the field.  She has authored or co-authored more than 100 publications, including two single-authored books, Faces in the Forest: The Endangered Muriqui Monkeys of Brazil (Harvard University Press) and Primate Behavioral Ecology, 4th edition (Pearson), a leading textbook in the field.

Review:

"Karen Strier’s novel idea of collecting and publishing primatologists’ mini memoirs in this volume has resulted in a valuable compendium of these individuals’ experiences and motivations as well as their research interests. The book also makes an interesting addition to the social history of primatology. I can thoroughly recommend this book to primatologists and those interested in primatologists and what they do. Primate Ethnographies will also be a useful and interesting addition to many universities’ bookshelves."― Sian Waters, Primate Eye (The Primate Society of Great Britain)
