The School for Advanced Research congratulates 2007-2008 Weatherhead Scholar, Angela Stuesse on the publication of her book titled Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race and Work in the Deep South, UCPress, 2016. Stuesse is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of South Florida. While in residence at SAR, she worked on completing her dissertation using research from five years with the workers’ center MPOWER (Mississippi Poultry Workers for Equality and Respect). As Stuesse told SAR while on campus, “My research is not only about the effects of new immigration to this region, but about power and who wields it, and what this says about capitalism in an era of globalization.”

For more information on the book, please visit the UCPress website.

Lamon Scholar, Audra Simpson on receiving the American Studies Association's 2015 Lora Romero First Book Publication Prize for her book, Mohawk Interruptus: Political Life Across the Borders of Settler States, Duke University Press, 2014.
