E.L. (Liza) Cerroni-Long is a cultural anthropologist—academically trained in her native Italy, Japan, and the US—whose major research interests include anthropological theory and methods, ethnicity, museum studies, and cross-cultural pedagogy.
She has done field research in Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and she has taught in Italy, Japan, Austria, Slovenia, Canada, and China, but her major ethnographic areas of expertise remain Japan and the USA.

Since 1995 Dr. Cerroni-Long has been engaged in the cross-cultural study of multicultural education, for which she served as UNESCO consultant. She founded and directed EMU’s Diversity in the Curriculum Program, and she is the Founding Chair of COER, the Commission on Ethnic Relations of the IUAES, the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences.
Since 2005 she is a Fellow of the International Institute for Humankind Studies (IIHS), and since 2010 she serves as Director of CRC, the IIHS affiliated Cross-Cultural Research Centre Net, a worldwide network of anthropologists.
