SLU's Urban Planning and Development Program will host a book talk on Making Our Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves by George C. Galster, Ph.D., Clarence Hillbery Professor of Urban Affairs and Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at Wayne State University, at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19, in the Pere Marquette Gallery, DuBourg Hall.
Galster will discuss his new book, and will speak on metropolitan housing markets, racial discrimination and segregation, neighborhood dynamics, residential reinvestment, community lending and insurance patterns and urban poverty. Galster uses his latest work 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, this volume explores what neighborhoods are, how they come to be, and how to make them productive and fair for their residents.
To attend, RSVP by Friday, Nov. 15.
