Meet Ann Kingsolver: New Faculty 2011

At the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester, we met with all of the new faculty hires in the College of Arts and Sciences. This series of podcasts introduces them and their research interests. Ann Kingsolver is the director of the Appalachian Center and Appalachian Studies Program at UK and is also a professor in the Department of Anthropology. Kingsolver does comparative research in the U.S, Mexico, and Sri Lanka that addresses the effects of globalization and transnational policy on people's livelihoods and identities and how people make sense of these changes.
