Early in 2015, an incredibly bright undergraduate student here at Mount Allison asked if I might be willing to supervise her summer research project on craft vendors in Ottawa’s famous ByWard Market. Since no one in her home department of sociology was willing to take on this brilliant student, I happily snapped up an opportunity to work with Caroline Kovesi (now an MA student in Critical Disability Studies at York). FINALLY the peer-reviewed paper based on her independent research has come out online in City & Community! It’s called “I Choose to Be Here”: Tensions Between Autonomy and Precarity in Craft Market Vendors’ Work. Check it out here.
