Fran Markowitz was born and raised in New York City, where she attended Hunter College High School during the 1960s. In the 1970s she studied at Binghamton University and completed a BA in the social sciences. After living several years in Atlanta, Fran went back north as a graduate student to the University of Michigan and in 1987 earned the PhD in Anthropology. She has been teaching anthropology at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheva, Israel since 1992. Fran has conducted ethnographic fieldwork in the U.S. (New York and Chicago), Israel, Russia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, thanks to grants from the National Institutes of Mental Health, the Wenner Gren Foundation, the Bi-National US-Israel Science Foundation, and IREX. Her books combine full-bodied ethnography with story-telling and pithy analyses. In her spare time Fran trims the bougainvillea in her garden, goes for long walks with her little dog Fistuki, watches crime dramas, and cooks up a storm.
