"Doing Anthropology for Social Justice"
a review of the ethnographies of welfare reform and their findings
Prof. Stack recently retired from
the faculty of the UC Berkeley College of Education. She has made
numerous contributions to the practice of ethnography, especially among African
Americans. Her landmark book, All Our Kin (1972), offered a serious and
influential challenge to the 1965 Moynihan Report that suggested poverty among
African Americans resulted from deficient families. Her most recent
work has been with teenaged workers in fast food in
Oakland , California .
She has won numerous awards for her research and writing.
