Shannon Cram

IAS faculty member Shannon Cram attended the annual American Anthropological Association meeting in Washington D.C. where she served as discussant for a panel entitled, "Environmental Worlds: Between Craft and Emergence."  Bringing together scholars from multiple disciplines and institutions, this panel explored the embodied relations of labor and environment through ethnographic research in high-end food cultivation in Japanese strawberry fields and "geoparks," "dead labor" in a Bolivian tin mine, tourism and finding "the craic" in the Scottish Highlands, and  water quality work in the Florida Panhandle.
