Abstract: This thesis deals with the ways in which illegal street-food vendors in Taipei, Taiwan negotiate the personal and professional hardships of their work. I place a strong emphasis on Taipei's shifting social and political climate and analyze the plans and enacted strategies of three neighboring vendors in Kung Kuan night market. In Chapter Three, I examine their strategies for dealing with present-day market life. I take Goffinan's notion of front and back regions, and I describe both front-stage strategies, such as manner, appearance, and use of language, and back-stage strategies for dealing with the police and other vendors and the physical demands of marketplace vending. In Chapter Four, I discuss the changing social and political context of Taipei, and I describe how these changes will affect night-market work. I pay particular attention to the plans that vendors are making now for mitigating future difficulties. I also discuss the role of the family and labor-pooling strategies in successful street-food operations and how these strategies will be affected by changing family norms and practices in Taiwan.
