Tea Time with Sarah Besky

 Ready your cups and saucers and set your kettles to boil! We’re talking tea with Sarah Besky!

Sarah is a Postdoctoral Scholar with the Michigan Society of Fellows and Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan. In her book, The Darjeeling Distinction: Labor and Justice on Fair-trade Tea Plantations in India (U of California Press, 2013), Sarah narrates the lives of tea workers in Darjeeling in engaging and evocative prose to, “explore how notions of fairness, value, and justice shifted with the rise of fair-trade practices and postcolonial separatist politics in the region.” The Darjeeling Distinction is the first book of its kind, charting a new field for examining how fair-trade operates in the context of large-scale plantation-based production.

Join us (and exxxtra special guest co-host Rebecca Hardin, Associate Professor of Natural Resources and Environment at UM, and It’s Hot in Here Champion Extraordinaire!!) this Friday from 12-1PM.

Listen live online @ www.wcbn.org, on your phone with WCBN’s iphone and android apps, or the old fashioned (but no less excellent) way by tuning your radio dials to 88.3 WCBN Radio Free Ann Arbor.

In the meantime, consider steeping your funny bones in these visual tea puns!
