Book Talk with George C. Galster. Delving deep into the question of whether American neighborhoods are efficient and equitable.
 

About this Event

This Book Talk with George C. Galster will delve 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 expands on how 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? 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.

GEORGE C. GALSTER is the Clarence Hillbery Professor of Urban Affairs and distinguished professor emeritus in The Department of Urban Studies and Planning at Wayne State University.
