Adrie Kusserow is Professor of Cultural Anthropology at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, VT. Her most recent international field work trips support girls education (South Sudan ? and Youth Media Literacy and Gross National Happiness in Bhutan. She holds a PhD in Social Anthropology from Harvard University, and a M.T.S. in Comparative Religion from Harvard Divinity School. Her debut collection Hunting Down the Monk was published by BOA in 2002, with a Foreword by Karen Swenson. She lives with her family in Underhill Center, Vermont where she was born and raised.

As an anthropologist, Adrie Kusserow's ethnographic poetry probes culture and globalization with poems about Sudanese refugees based in Uganda, Sudan, and the United States, especially the "Lost Boys of Sudan." The poet struggles with how to respond to suffering, poverty, displacement, and the brutal aspects of war. Much of this exploration is based in poems in which a mother is also bringing her family to a larger global arena.
