Proud supervisor alert! Student research published in City & Community

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.

Rhythms of gentrification

Does gentrification have a rhythm? Is there a temporal landscape of gentrification? What happens to those who are not in synch with a newly “happening” neighbourhood?
These are some of the questions that I pursue in my latest paper for cultural geographies, “Rhythms of gentrification: Eventfulness and slow violence in a happening neighbourhood.”
