Description

Join the School of Urban Studies for our Annual Lecture Series.  Special guest speaker Dr. George C. Galster, of Wayne State University presents
'Making Our Neighborhoods Making Our Selves'
 
Urban theorists have tried for decades to define exactly what
a neighborhood is. But behind that daunting existential
question lies a much murkier problem: never mind how you
define them—how do you make neighborhoods productive
and fair for their residents? In Making Our Neighborhoods,
Making Our Selves, George C. Galster delves deep into the
question of whether American neighborhoods are as efficient
and equitable as they could be—socially, financially, and
emotionally—and, if not, what we can do to change that.
Galster aims to redefine the relationship between places and
people, promoting specific policies that reduce inequalities in
housing markets and beyond. Drawing on economics,
sociology, geography, and psychology, Making Our
Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves delivers a clear-sighted
explanation of what neighborhoods are, how they come to
be—and what they should be.
