Sarah Elizabeth Morrow
Sarah Elizabeth Morrow is a Master's student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alabama. Previously, she attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania, receiving a BA in Anthropology and a BA in Theater.
Sarah's thesis research focuses on food security and conceptual definitions of "social capital". By working with a local non-profit organization, this research seeks to understand how women in need of food assistance find food resources, share knowledge with peers, and identify the role that the community may play in accessing food. Other research interests include nutrition, public health, community health strategies, and long term study of the biocultural and psychosocial impact of food insecurity over time.
Her undergraduate research looked at the role of identity and enculturation in theater subcultures and the role of academia as a regulatory device in the arts. Southeast Asian theater, topeng performance, and general mask development are also of personal interest.
In the Fall of 2012, Sarah will be working with her advisor, Dr. Elizabeth Cooper, to continue researching the needs of the University of Alabama Library System.
