Author: Renato Rosaldo

An internationally known cultural anthropologist, Renato Rosaldo started writing poetry in English and Spanish while recovering from a stroke in 1996. His first book of poetry, Prayer to Spider Woman/Rezo a la mujer araña (Coahuila, 2003), received an American Book Award in 2004. His second poetry collection, DIEGO LUNA'S INSIDER TIPS (Many Mountains Moving Press, 2012), won the Many Mountains Moving poetry book manuscript prize for 2009. Individual poems won the El Andar contest (2000) and the Many Mountains Moving contest (2005). He is currently a Professor of Cultural Anthropology at New York University and Lucie Stern Professor in the Social Sciences Emeritus at Stanford University. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The author of Cultura e verità (Meltemi, 2001) and Ilongot Headhunting, 1883-1974 (Stanford University Press, 1980), Rosaldo found "bridges" between anthropology and poetry and coined a term—"antropoeta"—to describe the way he can move back and forth between the two modes of writing.
