Lindsey Feldman

Ph.D. Candidate (University of Arizona)
PopAnth Author

Lindsey is a current PhD Student in sociocultural anthropology at the University of Arizona.

Her master’s research involved working with ranchers and cowboys in the Altar Valley of Arizona, examining this embodied, dialogically masculine form of work and the creation of complex working identities in rural spaces.

Her PhD dissertation topic will be on the phenomenon of inmate wildfire fighting in northern Arizona. She will draw on her broad interests in masculinity, risk, and work to examine the absolutely confounding paradox of inmates allowed to labour alongside non-inmate fire-fighters while in prison, but never being allowed to do so upon their release, because Arizona state laws prevent individuals with felonies from becoming public servants.

Lindsey is a native Tucsonan, is married to a welder, and has a really goofy dog named Meatball.
