Steven M. Bialostok

I am an educational and linguistic anthropologist by training. My research typically engages discourse analysis with social theory (mostly Foucault, Bourdieu), combining analysis of linguistic practices with ethnographic research oriented to theoretical debates about power, identity, and inequality. I have published on schooling, neoliberalisim, and late modern capitalism. My research has brought me to the Wind River Reservation as well as Afghanistan. My current five -year ethnography in Denver investigates a group of elderly Black men who have played dominoes together for decades, in a historically Black neighborhood that is undergoing gentrification.
