Anjuli Fahlberg , Ph.D., M.A.
Anjuli N. Fahlberg is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and co-director of the Building Together Research Collective, based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (www.construindojuntos.com). Her research employs an intersectional lens to examine urban violence and social movements across the Americas. She employs a participatory action research (PAR) approach in both ethnographic fieldwork and survey research. Her current book Activism under Fire: The Politics of Non-Violence in Rio de Janeiro's Most Dangerous Favela (under contract, Oxford University Press), documents how activists residing in Rio de Janeiro’s poor neighborhoods mobilize for citizenship rights in a context of armed drug gangs and racist policing. She has also conducted survey research on social development, insecurity and resilience in Rio de Janeiro's favelas, and is currently studying the impact of the pandemic in favelas.
