Jane Anne Morris is a recovering Midwesterner, a corporate anthropologist, and a writer.
She has been a bicycle commuter for 40 years, but will take a bus on the occasion that she’s carrying an accordion and three gallons of honey. She knows exactly how many kilowatt-hours of energy she uses in her dwelling each month, because she spent 8 years fighting against a utility company that wanted to strip mine tens of thousands of acres of Texas farmland for a fuel with a lower energy content than cow patties. That outfit–the Lower Colorado River Authority of Texas (LCRA)–became the “tribe” that was the subject of her anthropology dissertation.
After stints teaching community college anthropology, G.E.D. at a correctional facility, and ESL to undocumented workers, she started writing about activism, corporate “rights”, constitutional law, and most importantly what underlies all… democracy.
When not writing or lecturing, she works at her community garden, and shows chickens to kids at the Madison Children’s Museum Rooftop Ramble gardens.
