UIS professor blogs about thrift shopping

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."
