Anthropology Major Emily Stocker to Present at Second City Anthropology Conference
Undergraduate to represent U of L Dept. of Anthropology in Chicago this March.
Emily Stocker, an anthropology major at the University of Louisville, will be presenting her ethnographic research on economic reaffirmation and subversion in the second-hand commodity market at the Second City Anthropology Conference in March. Emily's research was conducted at a local flea market under the tutelage of Dr. Kelly O’Connor as part of ANTH 511's core curriculum.
"The project considers the relationships between groups within the bazaar (organizers, employees, and vendors) and the ways in which these interactions demonstrate the tensions and synthesis between market and community. Further, this research demonstrates how those who seek economic change are restricted by the larger market economy and creative in spite of those constraints."
