- A Critical Ethnography on the effects of Gentrification on 2nd Generation Dominican Professionals in Washington Heights, New York.
I am an Afro-Latina from Brooklyn, New York with a particular interest in the intersections of Race, Gender and power within Gentrification. My research seeks to understand the ways in which first and second-generation immigrants experience/make sense of Gentrification in New York city in particular.
