About the Author

Donald D. Stull is professor of anthropology at the University of Kansas, where he has served on the faculty since 1975. He received his doctorate from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1973, and a master's degree in public health from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1975. Stull formerly served as editor of Human Organization, the journal of the Society for Applied Anthropology, and coeditor of Culture & Agriculture. Since 1987, his research has focused on meat and poultry processing's impact on workers and host communities. He has received the Omer C. Stewart Memorial Award for exemplary achievement from the High Plains Society for Applied Anthropology; the Irvin E. Youngberg Award for Research Achievement in the Applied Sciences from the Kansas University Endowment Association; and the Sol Tax Distinguished Service Award from the Society for Applied Anthropology. Stull was made an honorary citizen of Garden City, Kansas, in 2001 and was presented with the key to the city in recognition of the value of his work for that community.

Michael Broadway is professor of geography and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Northern Michigan University. He holds degrees in education and geography from Nottingham University and London University and received his Ph.D. in geography from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1983. Before joining the faculty at Northern Michigan in 1997, Broadway taught at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, Wichita State University, and the State University of New York at Geneseo. It was during his time in Kansas that Broadway developed his interest in the meat industry, and he has gone on to study its impact upon communities and the environment in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Broadway was an expert witness in a court case against one of the leading meatpacking companies in the late 1990s. His research was the subject of a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation documentary that aired on The National in 1998. He was awarded a Fulbright Research Chair to the University of Alberta in 2006 and received Northern Michigan University's Excellence in Scholarship Award in 2007.
