An Ethnography of Urban Paramedics

Kevi Krause : Philosophy

Mentor: Professor Laura Nader, Anthropology

Kevi is studying the work-lives of Alameda County paramedics. His objective is to describe a dynamic process by whereby social relations and culture shape the practices of the paramedic community. His work should improve our anthropological and sociological understanding of factors that influence the behavior of groups of people. Results of Kevi's research may also be useful to companies and governments that provide emergency services.
