The Editors of Anthropoliteia are pleased to introduce our new team member, Sean Miller, who will be taking on co-editing responsibilities (along with the David Thompson) for the In The Journals feature.
Sean currently a Masters student in anthropology at the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies at the University of Ottawa, having earned a B.A. from Concordia University in Montreal. His work focuses on the perspectives on gentrification of residents of South Brooklyn with regards to their neighborhood, following the developments surrounding recent residential and commercial building developments in the surrounding neighborhoods of Clinton Hill, Williamsburg, and Bedford-Stuyvesant. His research interests, apart from gentrification, include governance, inequality, representation, and popular culture.
Having Sean on board will allow us to increase the frequency of ITJ to a monthly series, which will also allow us expand the scope and depth of our coverage.
