Justin MURGAI is an M.A and M.Phil graduate of department of anthropology, CUHK. He is currently the Humanitarian Welfare Manager of Christian Action and supervises Center for Refugees and Center and Shelter for Migrant Domestic Workers.
At the sharing with the Anthropological Field Methods class (ANTH5020), Murgai will broadly review how anthropological field methods have been supporting him in almost every aspect of his job including understanding the minority youth, refugees and foreign domestic workers; developing programs for the targeted groups, training culturally sensitive social workers, policemen and medical practitioners, conducting research for policy advocacy; and facilitating teamwork with the diverse staff of Christian Action. Based on Murgai’s personal experience, the sharing will give the class a chance to contemplate how anthropological fieldwork methods could have a profound effects in life beyond fieldwork.
