A recent blog post by Teresa Gonzales (Sociology) appears on the Everyday Sociology Blog.

http://www.everydaysociologyblog.com/2017/09/a-strangeness-in-my-mind-rural-poverty-and-isolation.html

Here is an excerpt:

“While A Strangeness in My Mind does not speak to the ongoing issues of poverty in the United States, it does highlight the universal paths that many people take in their search for economic security, community, and to live a life of dignity, with happiness and love. For Mevlut, he felt strangeness in his mind when in a sea of anonymous people, in a vast city, where no one could guess his thoughts. We might also think about disrupting perceptions and geographies of poverty as creating a needed strangeness in our collective minds.”
