Rachel Otwell from WUIS public radio recently wrote about UIS assistant professor of history Holly Kent's blog on thrift shopping.
"I have been really loving a blog about thrift shopping, which Holly Kent is the co-founder of. It's called Thriftanthology and she runs it with Kelli Oliver. The fact Kent teaches women's history at UIS gives her an interesting, nuanced perspective."
"Fashion tells you a lot about a culture and a society ... it gets us into a lot of big questions."
"Kent says learning about fashion provides info about society, class, and consumerism."
