On November 17th, the Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) hosted a daylong symposium on housing, segregation, and poverty. Scholars from all over the world came to Camden to take part in this event, which addressed topics such as the geography of inequality and its effects; exclusionary and inclusionary zoning; the fair housing movement; and affordable housing and the concentration of poverty. Professor Mark Stephens from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, served as the keynote speaker.
If these subjects are of interest to you, we encourage you to attend the monthly seminars hosted by CURE. The next event is on December 4th at 12:15 p.m. in the Armitage Hall Faculty Lounge. The topic is “Why Don’t Housing Choice Voucher Recipients Live Near Better Schools? Insights from Experimental and Big Administrative Data.”
