Rebecca Carter is a social, cultural, and urban anthropologist whose research explores human dwelling, vulnerability, and social-environmental change, particularly in the urban periphery.
To date, Dr. Carter's work has been based in New Orleans, where she examines the trajectory of urban development, decline, violence, and disaster. Carter focuses in particular on accompanying processes of social exclusion and displacement, and both old and new assertions of humanity -- fundamental ideologies of being, relating, and belonging that have emerged among the people and along the margins of urban society to both redevelop and reconstitute city and citizenry in the 21st century.
