In this course you get the opportunity to research a gentrifying neighborhood in NYC and develop a mini case study that examines housing and urban restructuring through a critical lens. Drawing on various methods (including field observations), weekly assignments, and discussions with your peers; you’ll build toward completing your case study over the 6-week period. During this time you will also learn:

  • how gentrification impacts affordable housing
  • why gentrification is a form of racial capitalism
  • what forms of local resistance exist
  • theories that attempt to explain how gentrification operates, and
  • methods for studying urban space

Meet your Instructor

Erin is a PhD candidate in Environmental Psychology at The Graduate Center, CUNY and adjunct lecturer in Urban Studies at Queens College since 2016. Her current research focuses on the material conditions and experiences of gentrification had by long-term Black residents and homeowners in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Situating the work within a racial capitalist framing, Erin is interested in how these residents maintain footholds in the neighborhood, both economically and socially. Additionally, Erin is a member of the Public Space Research Group, WRAC certified through Kingsborough Community College, and most recently a recipient of an Open Knowledge Fellowship to create OER courses.
