Kill Class is based on two years of fieldwork she conducted within war trainings in mock Middle Eastern villages erected by the US military across America. Her ethnographic monographic, Pineland: Human Technology and American Empire, is currently a finalist for the University of California Press Atelier series for Ethnographic Inquiry in the 21st Century, and her anthropological articles appear in Cultural Anthropology and American Ethnologist. Stone has an MFA in Poetry from Warren Wilson, a PhD in Anthropology from Columbia, and an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies from Oxford. She currently teaches at Princeton University.
