Room 514, 5th floor, 205 Richmond Street West

This workshop will provide information about how to effectively structure the content of your research proposal, and how best to put your case study forward for your upcoming SSHRC (Canadian Graduate Scholarship) and/or Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) application(s). It will be helpful to bring questions specific to your individual proposals along with a draft of your current research proposal.

Facilitator: Dr. Lynne Milgram.

Dr. Lynne Milgram’s research is rooted in anthropology, but lends itself to interdisciplinary collaborations of all kinds. Analyzing the commoditization of crafts, consumption and small-scale entrepreneurial activities in the northern Philippines, Milgram’s doctoral research traced the channels through which women exercise agency in their changing roles in craft production and trade with the advent of global market forces. Subsequently analyzing the socioeconomic and political impacts of microfinance development projects mounted throughout the Philippines, Milgram explored the relationship between the institutional claim to empowerment and the capacity of program structures to generate ‘real’ opportunities for women.

Dr. Lynne Milgram’s Bio (contd.)

Milgram’s ongoing projects examine Philippine women’s engagement in the global trade and consumption of secondhand clothing between the Philippines and Hong Kong and women’s work as street vendors. Both enterprises straddle legal/illegal practice and have emerged as growing arenas of labour given increasing rural-to-urban migration and declines in formal-sector jobs. Milgram’s most current project analyzes the shifting dynamics of urban trade livelihoods based on the sale of fresh produce. Here she highlights that the public market players, men and women, who activate these supply routes operate in a finely-tuned urban trading-scape – one that challenges the hegemony of governments’ framing of such trade approaches as “pre-modern” and inefficient. Milgram demonstrates that the vendors and marketers engaged in the aforementioned trades operationalize multiple work options to simultaneously negotiate their positions as sites of globally competitive economic activity and local struggles over state restructuring. Milgram makes her findings applicable for policy formation by government and non-government organizations seeking to sustain livelihood opportunities for women via a range of appropriate initiatives.

Lynne Milgram has published this research in peer-reviewed scholarly journals and edited volumes. She has guest edited special journal issues: Asian Studies Review (2005), “Edgy Things: Negotiating Borders and Identity in Asian Material Culture,” and City & Society (2014), “Norms, Networks, and Informality in the Urban Global South: Unmapping Regulatory Space.” Milgram has co-edited the following volumes: (with K. M. Grimes, 2000) Artisans and Cooperatives: Developing Alternative Trade for the Global Economy; (with R. Hamilton, 2007) Material Choices: Refashioning Bast and Leaf Fibers in Asia and the Pacific (2007); (with K. E. Browne, 2009) Economics and Morality: Anthropological Approaches; and (with K.T Hansen and W. E. Little, 2013) Street Economies of the Urban Global South. Material Choices won the TSA (Textile Society of America) Book of the Year Award, and Street Economies won the SAW (Society for the Anthropology of Work) Book of the Year Award.
