Einat Manoff is a Ph.D. candidate in the Environmental Psychology Program at the Graduate Center. Einat works with participatory methods to study the effects of neoliberalism and colonialism on the production of space. More specifically, her research deals with material realities associated with urban disinvestment and displacement. As a scholar-activist, Einat studies these issues together with the communities that are most burdened by these processes. Her community–based work is currently situated in the South Bronx, New York and in Israel/Palestine.
Einat is also an urban designer (Masters of Urban Design from the City College of New York) whose design work, pedagogy and curatorial projects, focus on the junctures of feminism, urbanism, politics and space.
She teaches at the City College of the City University of New York and is a research fellow with The Public Science Project.
