Laurakhoury's comment, March 10, 2013 6:49 PM
Here is a quote from the chapter titled Confronting Class in the Classroom from bell hook: "Bourgeois values in the classroom create a barrier, blocking the possibility of confrontation and conflict, warding off dissent. Students are often silenced by means of their acceptance of class values that teach them to maintain order at all costs. When the obsession with maintaining order is coupled with the fear of losing face, of not being thought well of by one's professor and peers, all possibility of constructive dialogue is undermined." Very powerful... Laura
Photography, Digital Storytelling and Indigenous Sociology
How can we use photography and digital storytelling for research on indigineous groups, the underrepresented, the marginalized and the powerless? This is called indigenous sociology.

Teaching is the practice of freedom, says bell hooks in her book Teaching to Transgress (1994: P.3). This means decolonizing the ways of knowing, liberating and skillful critical thinking, Since history is written mostly by the lions, then there is just one way to narrate the subaltern usining technology, namely, photography and storytelling. This Scoop it is designated to deal with this topic. I plan to help see the connections, contextualize the issue in hand and bring valuable and worthy information to this magazine. Laura

Joseph Heathcott calls what happened to St. Louis  "a slow-motion Katrina," and Robert Fishman says "the public sector failed the  people who lived in these buildings."

Street Photographers

This is a community for all of us who roam the streets with a camera in hand looking to capture the decisive moments in life.

 

What is street photography?] Street photography captures people and places within the public domain. More specifically, street photography is defined as “un-posed, un-staged photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings.” [Who are some well known classic street photographers?] Just to name a few...Henri Carier Bresson, Garry Winogrand, Vivan Maier, and Diane Arbus.

Liquid Surveillance & Social Media: Three Provocations

Liquid Surveillance & Social Media: Three Provocations | Photography, Digital Storytelling and Indigenous Sociology | Scoop.it
This post expounds on just section of Liquid Surveillance and should not be considered a proper “review” as such, though I have completed a full review for a journal.

Via nukem777
Laurakhoury's insight:

"The general thesis is that as people are tracked more and more via new technologies, and as data accumulates to unprecedented levels, “surveillance slips into a liquid state” (vi). Liquid surveillance is described as a softer form of surveillance, especially found in a consumer realm that spreads in unimaginable ways, spilling out all over. Surveillance has become less attached to spatial observation (e.g., the Panopticon) and, as such, has become post-panoptic, contrasting “the fixity and spatial orientation of solid modern surveillance with the mobile, pulsating signals of today’s flowing forms” (15)."

The first thing a sociologist must do is use his sociological imagination (Mills coined this concept). Looking at this urban photographer image should say it all... look how powerful photography is when looking at a peripheral area in a country and see where the discarded, unemployed and marginalized live and the open sewage outdoors...

Laurakhoury's comment, March 10, 2013 6:24 PM
Note the connection between photography and sociology according to the prominent sociologist Howard Becker: "At first, some photographers used the camera to record far-off societies that their contemporaries would otherwise never see and, later, aspects of their own society their contemporaries had no wish to see. Sometimes they even conceived of what they were doing as sociology, especially around the turn of the century when sociologists and photographers agreed on the necessity of exposing the evils of society through words and pictures."

As upscale, high-rise condos and hipster bars opened nearby, longtime customers joked: Is this really still “the ’hood”? Not anymore.

 

In a gentrifying neighborhood in Washington D.C. that was historically African-American, Fish in the ’Hood was an iconic restaurant that captured the feel of the area.  Just this May, the storefront restaurant was renamed Fish in the Neighborhood.

Questions to Ponder: Why?  Does it matter?  What does it mean?

Paige McClatchy's curator insight, September 15, 2013 5:36 PM

I read this article after Moss's op-ed piece, and the tactic that White used in order to keep his business is the practical kind of survival tactic that I found missing in Moss's piece. White says, “We’re adjusting, because it’s the only way to survive. I try to look and see what’s around me.” Instead of refusing to adapt his business to the changing environment, White did what a successful businessman should do: satisy the demands of his clientele. His clientele changed, so his business did. Stories about businesses like White's make me less sympathetic to the people who "cry gentrification."

Gregory S Sankey Jr.'s curator insight, March 6, 9:16 AM

This article was a very interesting read. It shines a light that, with a moderate and humble pace, gentrification might not completely dismantle a community's cultural identity. Although this shop-keep is making an attempt at keeping up with the change he see's in the neighborhood, it might not be entirely necessary. 

Bottom line, people who are new to a community should be entering and supporting local businesses that have ties to the neighborhood and not just the kitchy hipster bars that pop up like dandelions in an untended meadow.  

Thea Harvey-Brown's curator insight, April 24, 8:17 AM

This is a great article that focuses on the effects of gentrification on a single restaurant. This personal narrative reveals the lack of control that these originally lower income neighborhoods now face.
