Ayluonne TereszkiewiczAyluonne is interested in the nexus of temporality, political emotions, and the urban material landscape, as components of city planning. She is a first-year PhD student and comes to Princeton by way of Columbia University, where she graduated with a B.A. in Anthropology in 2017. She is energized by the challenge of researching urban built environments and urban redevelopment as an assemblage of emotional and intellectual forms, bodies, and materials, which exert force onto one another and form complex political dynamics. Her current research highlights San Francisco’s large-scale redevelopment of public housing into mixed-income housing, and asks: In cities known for progressive politics, how do mixed-income redevelopment strategies become flashpoints for contesting the “post-race” and “post-class” imaginations of urban futures?
