S2: E19: Surf Pilgrims, Tourism, and Heritage with Stefan Krause

For today’s episode, I chat with Dr. Stefan Krause about his research on surf tourism in Costa Rica and his work on cultural heritage in the Federated States of Micronesia.

Stefan is the Program Director of Anthropology at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. His academic research focuses primarily on the anthropology of tourism and cultural heritage. He holds an Master’s degree from San Diego State University where he conducted research on surf tourism in Costa Rica. Stefan’s anthropology PhD, however, is from the University of South Florida. There, he shifted his attention away from Central America to study the Western Pacific, focusing on the preservation of traditions and customs on the island of Yap in the nation of the Federated States of Micronesia.
