John H. Langdon I am a biologist anthropologist (Yale PhD 1984) employed in a biology department teaching anatomy to physical therapists. I was strongly influenced in high school by books of Loren Eisley, Robert Ardrey, and Desmond Morris. Thus when I lost interest in biochemistry and was really turned on by a course on anthropology of religion by Evon Vogt, I changed to anthro. Although I call myself a paleoanthropologist/ functional anatomist, I would prefer to think of myself as somewhat of a generalist with interests and teaching overlapping the three primary subfields and many outside of anthro. However, it is hard to be a generalist these days. I have spent 10 years trying to live down my dissertation -- I don't only do feet! My compromise has been to try to draw together my interests in my teaching. Thank goodness for small liberal arts schools that encourage disciplinary breadth and teaching.
