Biographical / Historical:
Sherry B. Ortner (b. 1941) is a cultural anthropologist and Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at UCLA. She received her PhD from the University of Chicago in 1970 after carrying out extensive fieldwork among the Sherpas of Nepal from 1966-1968, looking at religion, politics, and Himalayan mountaineering. She continued research among the Sherpas in 1976, 1979, and 1990, publishing several important works including Life and Death on Mt. Everest: Sherpas and Himalayan Mountaineering (1999) which won the J.I. Stanley prize for best anthropology book in 2004.

Ortner's later work includes research relating to meanings of "class," where she carried out fieldwork among her own high school graduating class, and the relationship between American culture and Hollywood films.
