Description: This workshop brings together graduate students from history, sociology, and anthropology who study questions of institutional access and autonomy in a panel of lightning talks, followed by an informal discussion and audience Q&A.

These talks will focus on a series of case studies that explore how access to political and economic institutions vary between individuals and communities. The panelists will address the National Domestic Workers Union and the Black Freedom Movement; the race and economic politics of Emergency Management in Michigan; homework and the social politics of breadwinner liberalism; the intersection of social capital and gender in French bankruptcy courts; and market liberalism and Black capitalism.
