SOC502 – Gentrification: Movement in Neighborhoods (Guest Edition)


Our first guest of the season is one we’re all fans of: Dr. Tanya Golash-Boza!! Tanya joins us to talk about a new project that explores the gentrification of her hometown located in the outskirts of Washington D.C. How do we measure gentrification? And what markers do local residents perceive as signs of gentrification? (Expensive ramen shops, we’re looking at you!) Join us as we make sense of how structures promote “killing a neighborhood [to] make a profit.”


Gentrification, Culture, Economics, Housing, Neighborhoods
