SOCIOLOGY AND ANTHROPOLOGY
Bruce O'Neill. Assistant Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, spoke
at Indiana University on October 7th. The talk was based on the his extensive
fieldwork in the homeless shelters of Bucharest. As a social issue that
emerged only after 1989, homelessness in Romania embodies the idea of
increasing "downward mobility" for some in the post-Communist world.
Surveying the experience of homelessness and boredom within the shelters,
Professor O'Neill will also address responses of the state and other actors to
increasing homelessnesswithin Bucharest.
