Very exciting to see my 2010 book, Sex and the Revitalized City: Gender, Condominium Development and Urban Citizenship (UBC Press) on this list!
Recently I was pleased to contribute reviews of two films to Films for the Feminist Classroom. The films were Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek and Changing Face of Harlem.
I’m excited to be a part of this great symposium on Brenda Parker’s 2017 book “Masculinities and Markets: Raced and Gendered Urban Politics in Milwaukee.”
“Gentrification work has been largely repetitive, consistently focused on the same debates, and citing the same authors in a closed citation loop that has us running in circles without greater understanding. These standards ignore gender and tend to under-cite women who write about gentrification.”
Early in 2015, an incredibly bright undergraduate student here at Mount Allison asked if I might be willing to supervise her summer research project on craft vendors in Ottawa’s famous ByWard Market. Since no one in her home department of sociology was willing to take on this brilliant student, I happily snapped up an opportunity to work with Caroline Kovesi.
