Pushed Out

Author(s): Ryanne Pilgeram
Publication Number: ECES-SB193
Issued in: 2021

What happens to rural communities when their traditional economic base collapses? When new money comes in, who gets left behind?
Sociologist Ryanne Pilgeram explores the structural forces driving rural gentrification and examines how social and environmental inequality are written onto these landscapes. Based on in-depth interviews and archival data, she grounds this highly readable ethnography in a long view of the region that takes account of geological history, settler colonialism, and histories of power and exploitation within capitalism.
