Project: The View From Cavallaros: Race, Gender, and Public Culture in an American City
"My project is an historical ethnography of political economy and public culture over the last three decades in New Haven, Connecticut. Its key focus is on the lives and apprehensions of working- and middle-class black and white women. Starting from the optic of a mixed and shifting neighborhood, and considering different residents’ visions of the “right to the city,” the study then opens up to the whole metropole and its economic, political, cultural, and demographic changes over time."
