CBE Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series Featuring Lance Freeman Wednesday, Jan 16, 6:30-7:30pm – UW Architecture Hall, Room 147
Lance Freeman, a professor in the Urban Planning program at Columbia GSAPP, conducts research on affordable housing, gentrification, ethnic and racial stratification in housing markets, and the relationship between the built environment and well being. As part of the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture series, he will be presenting on his newest book, A Haven and a Hell, the culmination of his research on issues related to neighborhood change, urban poverty, housing policy, urban sprawl and residential segregation. He examines how the ghetto shaped black America and black America shaped the ghetto, tracing the evolving role of predominantly black neighborhoods in northern cities from the late nineteenth century through the present day.
This event is free and a great opportunity to learn about homelessness research happening on another campus.
Time: 6:30-7:30 PM
Location: UW Architecture Hall, Room 147
