Joseph Doyle Hankins

sociocultural anthropologist


I am interested in the forms and effects of human labor. Any meaning - be it an affective attachment, a social relation, or a symbolic representation - relies on labor for its creation, sustenance, or transformation. I investigate the conditions under which such labor happens and the effects such labor brings about.
