This week we played an archived show – Tea Time with Sarah Besky.
We want to use this show to send our love and best wishes to Sarah Besky for her new job at the Watson Institute for International Studies, to host Rebecca Hardin for her great work in India, and to host Jennifer Johnson for her new appointment as Assistant Professor in Anthropology at Purdue University.
Tune in, and enjoy, the beautiful voices, intriguing stories, and lovely music. Check out also:

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.
