Toward an Understanding of Contemporary Professional Culture

Toward an Understanding of Contemporary Professional Culture

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Giulietti, Michael & Jordan, Ann
Description: This paper discusses research on understanding contemporary professional culture. In the summer of 2010, the author embarked on an applied anthropology project to study the American professional culture of shoe repair. The project was funded by UNT's McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program with guidance by Dr. Ann Jordan of UNT's Department of Anthropology. This qualitative study used the anthropological methods to investigate this rapidly diminishing group and the reasons for its precipitous decline. Participants were recruited either through in-store encounters or from participants in the Shoe Service Institute of America's 2010 convention in Oklahoma City, OK. Twenty-one participants were gathered from shoe repair establishments in DFW and 28 from the convention. The research uncovered the adaptive strategies employed by the shoe repair industry to remain a viable business in a consumption-driven market economy. In a future guaranteed to have fewer resources, shoe repair may see a resurgence as the public begins to value their services once more.

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Hubby, Desiree & Engen, Ryan
Description: This paper discusses research on rebuilding the world with green BRICs. Developed nations grew rich, in part, through over exploiting natural resources, dumping greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the atmosphere, and encouraging consumerist lifestyles with little concern for the long-term effects on our collective home, plant Earth. Today, these patterns are being replicated in developing nations. In countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs), there is a rising global middle class that desires to live an American-style of life, complete with cars, refrigerators, air conditioners, and other sources of pollution. Factors contributing to this social, economical, and global problem include inadequate responses to climate change, increases in global consumption, and dangerous dependency on non-renewable resources of energy. What is needed is a Green Energy Revolution, which includes development of an energy policy in developing countries. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and (2) focusing on developing and implementing green policy in these countries.
