Vincent Lyon-Callo is a cultural anthropologist who works primarily on issues of poverty and class processes within the United States. His current research analyzes how to make sense of practices and policies whereby community members respond to social and economic restructurings in Southwest Michigan. He is currently working on a book based upon that research to be co-authored with Boone Shear. His first book “Inequality, Poverty, and Neoliberal Governance” explores homelessness becomes individualized and possible resistance against systemic inequities become muted and marginalized. He is a member of the editorial board of the journal Rethinking Marxism and recently served as co-organizer for the journal's 2006 international conference.
