Social Dimensions of Consumption in Santiago, Chile - Summer 2005
Using field notes and interviews collected in Santiago, Chile in the summer of 2003, Catherine and Dr. Stillerman are investigating the social aspects of interaction, retail, and informal vending in several spaces throughout Santiago, including a flea market, a farmer's market, and a mall. They are also researching existing sociological theory regarding public space and the informal economy, and plan to publish an article in a sociological journal detailing their findings and making an original contribution to the field of sociology.
