Gender and Globalization in Appalachia: Mary Anglin

Mary Anglin, associate professor in UK's Department of Anthropology, discussed the effects of globalization on gender in reference to Appalachian women and Appalachian communities. In order to better understand the region's past and present, studies of women and gender in Appalachia should not be ignored. This field of study encourages new kinds of questions and topics for this specific culture, including the manifestations and consequences of power and documenting the impact of trans/national capital on regional settings. Anglin argues that too little attention has be given to this perspective, despite its potential value to many fields of study.

Sound, Place, and Identity: Ron Pen

Ron Pen, a professor in the UK School of Music, discussed how Appalachian music unities people and place, and how the styles brought to the region by its immigrant residents combined and generated several new musical genres, such as swing, bluegrass, rockabilly, and contry. Music creates a bond that binds individuals as shared community and creates a society based on values rooted to identiy and place. Pen referenced the visual imagery and landscape of Appalachia to describe various musical sounds that have been passed down through generations in the region. He combined these two notions to reflect how music creates identity and defines a region surrounded by industrialization and development issues.
