CRRES Postdoctoral Scholar, 2019-2021
Candace Miller was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Following her fellowship with CRRES, Candace accepted a position as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology with the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. Broadly, her research interests focus on race/ethnicity, urban sociology, and culture. Currently, Candace’s research agenda is driven by an interest in racial inequalities embedded in and stemming from the contemporary urban political economy. She is currently working on a book based on a mixed-methods examination of the disparate experiences and outcomes of Black and white small business owners in the context of contemporary redevelopment efforts in Detroit, Michigan. In addition, she is currently examining how arts organizations are distributed among poor and minority urban neighborhoods, tracing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black and white business owners’ outcomes, and tracing the exchange of capital between higher- and lower-socioeconomic status neighborhoods in metropolitan Indianapolis, Indiana during the COVID-19 pandemic.
