In this Brown Bag event, Sarah Tynen, a graduate student in the Department of Geography, will discuss her research on housing developments in Nanjing. She will take an ethnographic approach to examining urban redevelopment in order to address the everyday nuances of the uneven geographies of housing development.

This project examines the relationship between economic development and inter-group tensions on a local scale, which is contextualized in the broader global processes of increased capital mobility in order to engage with debates about the political economy of increased globalization and neoliberalization. This research questions the effect of development efforts to simultaneously regulate and deregulate various urban spaces based on social status and household income.

This event will be held on Friday, September 27, at 12:00 p.m., in Guggenheim 201E. We look forward to seeing you there!
