Kivland is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Dartmouth College, where she writes and teaches about street politics, insecurity, and social performance in contemporary Haiti and the broader Caribbean. She is the author of Street Sovereigns: Young Men and the Makeshift State in Urban Haiti (Cornell University Press, 2020), which analyzed the potential and challenges of organizing politically in urban contexts characterized by poverty, insecurity, and governmental neglect.
