Monica Berlin (English) has published two new poems. “[First we learn the order of continents]” and “[Without apology, without guilt, not slumped against]” appear in the most recent issue of Poetry Northwest (summer/fall 2017).
Teresa Gonzales (Sociology) recently wrote a blog post in Everyday Sociology on a talk she gave to the Knox Chapter of UNICEF on the impacts of global gentrification on the lives of impoverished children.
“Planetary gentrification is closely linked to both global markets and global political arrangements that directly impact people at the local scale. It has therefore become a process that expands unequal power relations and exacerbates social isolation. Gentrification, at the local and the global level, goes hand in hand with poverty.”
