Japonica Brown-Saracino is Associate Professor of Sociology at Boston University. A graduate of Smith College (BA) and Northwestern University (PhD), Brown-Saracino uses ethnographic methods to study changing places, and especially to explore the role of identity and culture in community change processes. Her 2009 book, A Neighborhood That Never Changes, winner of the 2010-2011 Urban Affairs Association Best Book Award, explores gentrification in two small U.S. towns and two Chicago neighborhoods. The book documents the heterogeneity of gentrifiers’ beliefs and practices, with special attention to a class of gentrifiers whom she terms “social preservationists”: highly self-conscious gentrifiers who are mindful of their impact on local “authenticity” and who seek to limit disruptions and displacements associated with gentrification. She is also the author of an edited volume, The Gentrification Debates, and is at work on a new book, which is under advance contract with the University of Chicago Press.
