Erin McElroy is a doctoral student in feminist studies at UC Santa Cruz, studying the impact of Silicon Valley on dispossessions in post-Socialist Romania and the San Francisco Bay Area. As the cofounder of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, a digital cartography and oral history collective documenting the ecology of tech-boom-induced gentrification, McElroy brings a collective ethos and skills in spatial analysis to her research, which employs ethnography, literary/cultural analysis, archival work, post-socialist analytics, feminist science, technology studies, and decolonial methodologies. McElroy holds an MA in cultural anthropology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and a BA in cultural studies from Hampshire College, and has been an active anti-eviction organizer with Eviction Free San Francisco and other groups in the Bay Area.
