Bio/Research

My broad research interests encompass youth cultures, citizenship, democracy, social inclusion and exclusion, globalization/neoliberalism, social movements, urban sociology, and education. My primary theoretical influences include Pierre Bourdieu, Hannah Arendt, Paul Ricoeur, feminist theorists of agency, democracy, citizenship, and the state (e.g. Wendy Brown, Judith Butler, Seyla Benhabib, Lois McNay) and many theorists connected to the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (e.g. Paul Willis, Stuart Hall, Phil Cohen, Anoop Nayak). Methodologically, I do qualitative work that could be characterized as phenomenological in nature, incorporating both traditional ethnographic methods (e.g. interviewing, participant-observation) and non-traditional (e.g. visual and web-based methods).

Current research continues to focus on the urban effects of the Olympic Games for low-income, homeless, and street-involved young people.
