Michael Giulietti, a student of Anthropology at the University of North Texas is a student of the four-field approach and has completed fieldwork in both Archaeology and Cultural Anthropology.  After receiving funding from the McNair Scholars Program in 2009, he embarked on the first ever academic inquiry into the professional culture of shoe repair.  Michael has presented material at the 2011 Society for Applied Anthropology meeting and numerous other venues.  Future plans for the research include adding to the academic literature on the anthropology of consumption or applying new perspectives to cultural materialism.  Exiting UNT in 2011 and matriculating into Oregon State University’s Masters of Applied Anthropology Program, Michael hopes to apply future work with craftsmen to assist businesses adapting to changing consumer economies.
