Tanya Golash-Boza is a scholar who focuses on gaining a deep understanding of systems of oppression and exploitation. As a writer, speaker, and teacher, she tells stories of people and of systems to help colleagues, students, readers, and listeners understand how racism and capitalism structure our lives and what we need to do to change this country and the world.
She is currently working on a study funded by the National Science Foundation that explores how gentrification and neighborhood change shape the reintegration trajectories of formerly incarcerated men. This research combines interviews with 75 formerly incarcerated men in Washington, DC with Census data, ACS data, and a housing survey. For updates, see the Mapping Gentrification page.
