Eunjung Jee
I have been studying heterodox economics as well as sociology since I was in
undergrad. Especially Marx caught my eye and had me focused on historical
materialism and labor theory of value. My masters thesis was about the value and
price of information goods - software - and it was my first attempt to explain the
economic phenomena on marxian basis. This topic is still my first research
interest, but now I am trying to expand to technical changes and labor process.

I used to teach Marxs Capital at Korean University Workers Union for a year and
worked as a TA for marxist economics courses. But, in Korea, TAs role was
limited to grading and dealing with students claims on grades. In the first semester at UMass Amherst, I
was a TA for Introduction to Microeconomics. And there, the professor Coram used Friedmans Micro
textbook which was very impressive. I found that the textbook was well written and stimulating with depth.
The book was perfect for those who have just started studying economics. Reading this book led me to
be a TA for Econ103 again.

Brian Callaci
I'm from Providence, Rhode Island. Before coming to UMass I worked
for 8 years in the labor movement on union campaigns organizing
workers in the industrial laundry, grocery store, airport services, and
casino gaming industries, primarily in Phoenix, New York City, and Los
Angeles. I decided to go to grad school while lobbying the UK
Parliament in 2012 on behalf of the United Food and Commercial
Workers regarding the then-current financial reform legislation, and
realizing my economics needed more polishing. While a full-time
student and TA, I still work part time on the ongoing fast food workers
"fight for $15" campaign.

Lacey Mower

I was born, raised, and attended college in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have a BS in
Economics and a Business Minor from the University of Utah. I am currently a
first year PhD student and chose to attend UMass because of the department's
strong heterodox approach to economics. My research interests include labor
economics, the economics of poverty, inequality, and social welfare systems in
the United States, and also Marxian economics in relation to the
aforementioned topics as well as to capitalist crises. When I'm not busy
studying, I enjoy playing with my puppy Milo.
My office hours are as follows:

Tuesdays, 11:00am-1:00pm or by appointment.
Thompson Hall Room 930
