Abstract

Barbaric, Unseen, and Unknown Orders: Innovative Research on Street and Farmers’ Markets alex ander v. stehn University of Texas Rio Grande Valley professor mor a les’s coss di a logue lect ur e demonstrates the utility of pragmatism for his work as a social scientist across three projects: (1) field research studying the acephalous and heterogeneous social order of Chicago’s Maxwell Street Market; (2) nascent research on how unseen religious orders animate the lives of im/migrants and their contributions to food systems; and (3) large-scale longitudinal research on farmers’ markets using the Metrics + Indicators for Impact (MIFI) toolkit. The first two sections of my paper applaud and build upon Morales’s first two projects, and my extremely brief third section raises some questions about positivist specters that may haunt the MIFI project insofar as it is conceptualized, described, and deployed us- ing the terms favored by mainstream social science. Barbaric Orders: Racist Dimensions of the Problem of Order in the Americas Professor Morales charges positivist social scientists with baking no bread because they generally fail to move past dissection and facile explanation. Morales’s great hope, which he names pragmatism, is that social scientists would not just dissect and better
