Erin Taylor is a Lecturer in Anthropology at The University of Sydney, Australia. Her academic interests include urban anthropology; social stratification and classifications; poverty, production and consumption; and material culture. Her doctoral dissertation "Abajo el Puente: Place and the Politics of Progress in Santo Domingo" explores the strategies and practices that residents of an inner-city squatter settlement without legal land title engage in as they attempt to achieve forms of progress on their own and other people's terms. She is preparing a book manuscript for publication that particularly focuses on the politics of housing. Erin has published an article in Identities: Global Studies in Power and Culture concerning representations of the countryside and the city in Santo Domingo. She has also published in the International Journal of Cultural Studies on media and popular representations of crime in poor barrios, and Dialectical Anthropology on modernity and citizenship from the 1880s to the present day.
