As a postgraduate student in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies, I am focusing on the topic of agency and community among the Sam people of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Specifically, I am interested in the ways the Sam people use their cultural value of social harmony (wanbel) to bring about successful endeavors, in such areas as diverse as winning sports games to averting death by sorcery.
