Dr. Philippe Bourgois, Richard
Perry University Professor of Anthropology and Family and Community
Medicine, has been awarded a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship for his
ethnographic research on urban poverty, segregation, and drug use from
the vantage point of an inner-city drug corner. Findings and photographs
from the research will be published in a new book, tentatively titled Cornered. According to Bourgois, the book will "analyze the emergence of increasingly distressed new subjectivities
among vulnerable, inner-city, immigrant populations under the specific
conditions of 21st-century poverty."
