“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.
This exciting collection has just become available! Win Curran and Trina Hamilton have brought together scholars of environmental gentrification to explore the idea of “just green enough.”

Dr. Win Curran’s new book from Routledge’s “Critical Studies in Urbanism and the City” series has been hotly anticipated by many of us! It comes out September 5.
