Alex A. G. Taub, M.A. has taught Anthropology at the Wenatchee Campus of W.V.C. since 2003. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Central Washington University in 1990, and his Master’s degree from Western Washington University in 1992.  His teaching focuses students’ attention on how the ideas of Anthropology can be directly applied in their own lives, and how understanding another culture, can help one to better understand their own.  Current professional interests include: acculturation (cross-cultural child development), youths-at-risk, street gangs, and Celtic village studies.  His publications include articles and books on high-risk youth, ethnobotany, two lab manuels, politics and religion, and parenting cross-culturally.
