This document represents the first and second phase of a project to build an inventory
of key literature on the subject of ‘markets and diversity’. The first phase involved a
literature search and compilation of 100 bibliographic items. The second phase involved
the annotation of 40 of these items. The third phase consisted of a synthetic overview
of this literature, and was published as an MMG Working Paper 11-03, ‘Markets and
Diversity: An Overview’.
The literature was compiled using various databases, web search tools, and a range
of search terms. I combined search terms indicating the type or region of markets (i.e.
‘Bazaar’, ‘souq’, ‘fea’, ‘feira’, ‘open-air market’, ‘open market’, ‘farmer’s market’, ‘street
market’) with indicators of diversity (i.e. ‘ethnic’, ‘immigrant’, ‘class’, ‘race’, ‘gender’).
Other more specific thematic terms (i.e. ‘cosmopolitanism’, ‘entrepreneurship’, ‘inclusion’,
‘interaction’, ‘Orientalism’ and so on) were also used. There were no restrictions
as to time period, region, or publishing date, although the emphasis is on recent work
in the field. The entries focusing most specifically on diverse markets were selected for
more thorough annotation.
Section I of this paper presents the bibliographic abstracts, organized by research
theme (please see WP 11-03 for a detailed explanation). This section includes only published
abstracts. Where no abstract was supplied, I provide a brief summary of the entry.
Note: the research themes are not mutually exclusive, and the abstracts may appear
under more than one heading. An * preceding an entry indicates that the source is
annotated in section II.
Section II contains the annotations, organized alphabetically, by the author’s last
name. For each of these annotations, I provide the 1) disciplinary background of the
author(s) and, where possible, their institution; 2) research questions; 3) conceptual
framework; 4) group studied; 5) methodology; 6) findings; and 7) significance of the
research to the field. In Section III, the references are organized by region (I use the
United Nations regional scheme).
