This spring marks the 35th anniversary of the publication of All Our Kin, Carol Stack’s path-breaking ethnography of the survival strategies of African-American women living in poverty in urban America. A conference honoring the legacy of Stack’s work will be held at Yale University May 1-2, 2009. The conference celebrates more than three decades of Stack’s contribution to ethnography as a method of critical inquiry into the social conditions and public policies that shape people’s everyday lives.
