Hi, everyone. My name is Shannon Telenko, and I’m currently doing a postdoc in equity pedagogy in the College of Education at Penn State. I’m a cultural anthropologist. My dissertation, completed in 2016 at American University with Brett Williams as my advisor, focused on housing displacement in urban areas leading to in-migration to rural areas of Pennsylvania (from 2005-2006). I am struggling with getting out a dissertation article because I find myself picking up threads – my graduate program took some time to complete with competing family interests. BUT the research is still relevant and the lessons from it are especially relevant. While it would be nice to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, I’m also focused on how to continue sharing these lessons with a more public audience, particularly as a way to prepare communities to be more welcoming in the face of increases in migration. I’m really excited to be participating in this course with you all.
