Melissa Fisher is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at Georgetown University. Her forthcoming book, Wall Street Women: Gender, Class, and Power in America, is an ethnographic historical account of the first generation of women on Wall Street. Melissa published some of her findings on Wall Street women in a volume she co-edited, entitled Frontiers of Capital: Ethnographic Reflections on the New Economy (Duke University Press, 2006). The volume brings together ethnographies which explore how cultural practices and social relations have been altered by the radical economic and technological innovations of the New Economy. Melissa will be an Invited Visiting Fellow in the Department of Anthropology and Center for Organizational Research at the University of Stockholm in May 2009. Her next research project will focus on gender, faith, investment and communities in the U.S.
