Transnational Lives with Nina Glick-Schiller

Connecting with people from around the world is much easier now than it has ever been before. With the internet, phones, and fast travel, we can build relationships and networks in new ways - breaking through the barriers of national boundaries. This development of relationships and their influence despite national borders is known as transnationalism, a social phenomenon that we will be focusing on throughout a four part series. Join the conversation as we kick off the series with Lauren Copeland, a graduate student from the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies, Pathmanesan Sanmugeswaran, a graduate student in Anthropology, and Agata Grzelczak, a graduate student in Hispanic Studies, as they interview Nina Glick-Schiller, one of the pioneers of transnational studies. Glick-Schiller’s research has spanned across her career, influencing scholars both in the humanities and social studies.

Gender and Globalization in Appalachia: Mary Anglin

Mary Anglin, associate professor in UK's Department of Anthropology, discussed the effects of globalization on gender in reference to Appalachian women and Appalachian communities. In order to better understand the region's past and present, studies of women and gender in Appalachia should not be ignored. This field of study encourages new kinds of questions and topics for this specific culture, including the manifestations and consequences of power and documenting the impact of trans/national capital on regional settings. Anglin argues that too little attention has be given to this perspective, despite its potential value to many fields of study.

This podcast is a recording of her lecture on May 21st, 2012, at Shanghai University. The session was part of the Symposium on Globalization, Identity, and Cultural Diversity
