Marius Risi is a freelance European Ethnologist living in
Engelberg, Switzerland. He’s just about to finish his PhD
on cultural changes in the Swiss alpine region of Valais at
Basle University. The main part of his thesis consists of the
ethnographical film “Changing Times: Life in the Upper Valais”
(2006, 65 min., with English subtitles). He is currently
working on different other research projects related to alpine
culture (in the cantons of Grisons and Uri).
