Research brown bag: Gentrification and mobility with Amy Lubitow

Location: Smith Memorial Student Union, 333
January 11, 2017 12:00 pm - January 11, 2017 1:00 pm

Amy Lubitow, a TREC researcher and assistant professor of sociology at Portland State University, gives a free talk titled: Inequities in Urban Mobility in Portland: Understanding Community Vulnerability and Prospects for Livable Neighborhoods. The talk is part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Research Brown Bag Series.

Gentrification and development are changing the face of many Portland neighborhoods. This talk will draw on data from focus groups and participatory mapping research with residents in SE and North Portland neighborhoods. The presentation will share findings on the patterns of movement reported by residents in gentrifying neighborhoods and will offer ideas and perspectives on how to plan for a sustainable future for all Portlanders.

The talk will be held at the Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 333, on the Portland State campus.
