Science in St. Louis: Deconstructing Gentrification: Neighborhood Change in St. Louis

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Mid-County Branch
Meeting Room (MC)

Event Details

Presented by Academy of Science St. Louis. Native tribes in Alaska have more than fifty words for snow, but we have only one word for socioeconomically ascending neighborhoods-gentrification. When we lump complex processes such as changing neighborhoods under one term, we invite confusion. A simplistic view of gentrification has distracted attention form the more serious problem of disinvestment and deterioration. In fact, gentrification is a complex and variegated phenomenon, one that author and political scientist, Todd Swanstrom, demonstrates using examples from St. Louis in this fascinating look at our changing neighborhoods. Adults. Registration required.
