Gordon Ulmer is a PhD candidate and Fulbright-Hays fellow in the Department of Anthropology who has been conducting research in the Peruvian Amazon for nine years. Ulmer’s research examines the shifting domains of life and labor in Madre de Dios, Peru, the rapidly developing triple-frontier region where the national borders of Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil convene. His dissertation is based upon 18 months of fieldwork with laborers who shift between ecotourism, park patrolling, gold mining and logging.
