Anthropology professor publishes book
“Street Life under a Roof: Youth Homelessness in South Africa,” by Assistant Professor of Anthropology Emily “Molly” Margaretten, was published by the University of Illinois Press Sept. 8.
Point Place stands near the city center of Durban, South Africa. Condemned and off the grid, the five-story apartment building is nonetheless home to 100+ teenagers and young adults marginalized by poverty and chronic unemployment. Margaretten draws on 10 years of up-close fieldwork to explore the distinct cultural universe of the Point Place community.
The book is available on amazon.com.
