Tracey Rosen profile picture

Tracey Rosen is a Lecturer on Social Studies at Harvard University. She is a sociocultural and economic anthropologist with broad training in social theory, political economy, and semiotics. Rosen earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Chicago in 2015 and received funding from  Fulbright-Hays and the Council for European Studies to conduct over three years of doctoral field research in Greece, Europe and China.  Her current book project, How «Made in China» is made in Greece examines the sociocultural dimensions of new trade relationships forged between Europe (specifically Greece) and China. Conceived as an ethnography of advanced, global capitalism, the book tracks the introduction of Chinese merchants, commodities, and capital into local Greek markets over the course of the past fifteen years.

While at the University of Chicago, Rosen taught the social science core in the collegiate division. She also taught and advised graduate students in the Masters Program in Social Sciences. Between 2016-2017 she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Hellenic Studies Center at Princeton University. At Harvard, she is eager to work with a wide group of student interests including but not limited to: urban ethnography, value and capitalism, nation and ethnicity, economic crisis, migration, sports, and human/non-human animal relations.
