Let’s say that my name is Vincent Battesti, I was born in 1970, I am not really often in France, I am a researcher in Social Anthropology, currently in Cairo since March 2002, oh no, I’m back now in France, in Paris, in the aera of la Goutte d’Or since April 2006…, — gosh, no, I’m in New York now —, well, fair enough, let’s say this site displays my research and even sometimes some its results. To have a look on my bio, please look around nearby…
Researcher CNRS (recruited in 2009 as chargé de recherche 1re classe) in the Lab.

Certain Net surfers thought that I was the gentleman with the funny red hat on the head, present on the header-block of the site. Not at all. It is about the sheikh of the oasis of al-Gara, pretty close to Siwa.
Some other Net surfers considered that it would have been tasteful to post my mug (there are always physiognomists). I am conciliatory. Here it is,below on this page.
My home base, my neighborhood is now the 18th district, Barbès, la Goutte d’Or, Château rouge, in Paris.
