Portraits of Gentrification: When Neighborhood Change Becomes News
Zawadi Rucks-Ahidiana is a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research is at the intersection of race, class, space, and culture. Her current project documents how the media portrays gentrification in order to better understand the depictions that influence public perceptions of class-based neighborhood changes and policy responses to gentrification. She hopes to continue her work as a tenure-track professor.
