The Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities is hosting a lecture by Jennifer Vogt, a PhD candidate in cultural anthropology, on Tuesday, April 23, at 4:10 p.m. at the Warren Center. Vogt will present “Respecting the Competition: Artisans, Development, and Cooperative Practices in Peruvian Andes.” This lecture is part of the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities Graduate Student Lecture Series.
Vogt’s dissertation research examines how artisans from the community of Quinua, Peru engage recent state policies of legal reform that promote new forms of economic organization. Her primary research interests include economic anthropology, community development studies, transformations in socio-cultural organization, and local and collective experiences of macro-level economic policy reform. As part of her fieldwork, she has worked alongside ceramicists from Quinua in both Quinua and Lima, Peru.
