Description:

Please join Penn IUR for a book talk by George C. Galster, Clarence Hillbery Professor of Urban Affairs and Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Wayne State University, who will discuss his new book, Making Our Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves. A prolific author on the topics of metropolitan housing markets, racial discrimination and segregation, neighborhood dynamics, residential reinvestment, community lending and insurance patterns, and urban poverty, Galster uses this 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. Galster will be introduced by Susan Wachter, Co-Director, Penn IUR and Albert Sussman Professor of Real Estate, Professor of Finance, The Wharton School. Vincent Reina, Assistant Professor, Department of City and Regional Planning, Weitzman School of Design, will lead a discussion to close the event.
