Join Cindy for the third episode in this Spring’s collection, Economies of Waste and Discard. In this Episode, Cindy is joined by Dr. Elana Resnick. Elana’s fieldwork among a group of Romani street sweepers in Sofia Bulgaria gave her first hand insight into the racialization of waste labor, as well as how this work has been affected by the post-socialist transition and EU accession. Elana Resnick is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California Santa Barbara.

Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA)

SEA’s podcast, Mergers and Acquisitions demonstrates how anthropological and other perspectives can enhance and complicate understandings of economic life and contemporary events. Mergers and Acquisitions hosts interviews with leading economic anthropologists, provides reflection pieces on economic transformations and problems, and serves as a vehicle for new and established scholars to connect with each other. Recognizing that the best ideas and insights are rarely generated alone, Mergers and Acquisitions offers a collective mind-hive for furthering the study of economic life.
