Take part in this interesting seminar for students, academic faculty staff and interested members of the public. Learn more from Professor Ann Kingsolver, who is a cultural anthropologist.
Professor Ann Kingsolver is cultural anthropologist of Department of Anthropology, University of Kentucky. Her topical focus is political anthropology and her ethnographic fieldwork has been primarily in the U.S., Mexico, and (as a Fulbright researcher) in Sri Lanka. Some of her work is informed by writings on political economy and power; interpretive approaches; and postcolonial, womanist, and participatory research perspectives.
This seminar will examine the current U.S. administration’s framing logic in staging such spectacles as “Made in America Week” 2017, with its erasure of centuries of global engagement and its nostalgia for a white nation that never was.
This is an open series, jointly hosted by (CRESI) Centre for Research in Economic Sociology and Innovation and (ESARN) Essex, South Asia Research Network
