  • Alfredo Garcia



    Alfredo is currently a graduate student in the sociology department at Princeton University. He graduated from Duke University in 2008 with a B.S. in Biological Anthropology, a second major in Religious Studies, and a minor in Chemistry. After a year teaching in London, he went to Harvard Divinity School, where he received his Masters in Theological Studies in 2011. He is currently conducting a multi-year ethnography of Wynwood, Miami: a neighborhood which was once the Puerto Rican barrio of Miami and is now one of the most popular arts districts in the country. In the past, he has focused his research on the segment of the U.S. population that identifies itself as having "no religion" on surveys, a diverse group that includes the irreligious, unreligious, anti-religious, and anti-clerical. His main research interests now are in the sociology of culture, sociology of religion, and urban renewal. You can find out more about Alfredo on his blog at: www.etreligio.blogspot.com
