On March 11, 2015, I travelled to Verona, Italy, to present a paper at a conference held at the University of Verona and participate in a subsequent two-day workshop. This event, sponsored by National Science Foundation (NSF), and organized by Professors Giovanni Bennardo of Northern Illinois University and Anna Paini of the University of Verona, brought together scholars from across the world who had conducted fieldwork in diverse communities around the world on `Cultural Models of Nature’ during the summer of 2014 with a grant from the NSF; hence, the theme of the event, “Local Knowledge: Fieldwork Experience.” The event lasted from 12th to 15th March. I returned on March 16th. My air ticket to and from this venue was made possible by generous support from the Center for International Education, Department of Anthropology, and Department of Education. I am eternally grateful.
