Research

Meaghan is broadly interested in understanding how communities and neighborhoods change and the groups of people who help to produce these changes. Drawing on a comparative case study of Rangeley, Maine and Boston, Massachusetts, Meaghan’s current project explores the ways second homeowners—a growing group of affluent in-migrants—come to shape the contours of everyday local life amid large-scale social and economic restructuring in both urban and rural areas. ​
