This feature is slightly misleading. The individual the Guardian deploys as an anthropologist is actually not trained in the subject, but simply ‘does anthropology’, whatever that means.

Not according to the Wikipedia page I for some strange reason linked to. But according to a portrait in the Guardian, he has done an PhD in anthropology in Cairo. But he’s mostly worked as a journalist, it seems. He “sees himself as an anthropologist who stumbled into journalism by accident".
