Gonzales Blog Post

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.”
