Abstract

The A. examines home-based work in an economic network to highlight the intersection of gender and economic practices in rural Appalachia. The case study for this project is an economic network comprised of sixty home-based workers who produce knitwear for regional and national markets. The complexity of shifting economic livelihoods in the rural Appalachian context is examined. The analysis focuses on the (re)negotiation of gender identities by home-based workers in the context of economic restructuring
