Thursday, February 15th, 2018 Gentrification and Displacement in Detroit: Perspectives from Below

Thursday, February 15, 20184:00PM - 5:30PM208N, North House, 1 Devonshire Place


CSUS Graduate Student Workshop


Urban regeneration initiatives can help cities improve derelict built environments and increase their tax revenues. However, these efforts can also produce negative outcomes (e.g. displacement). This talk explores how gentrification occurs in a shrinking cities context and examines how gentrification and disinvestment affect the housing opportunities of low-income residents in Detroit.
