Democratizing the Green City | Spring 2014 Discussion Series

March 13, 2014

This three-part discussion series and a book talk sought to deepen our understanding of the causes of—and potential solutions to—the displacement and social inequalities that often result from urban greening agendas.  The series featured emerging scholars Daniel Aldana Cohen and Hillary Angelo (NYU, Sociology) as moderators and scholars such as Miriam Greenberg (Sociology, University of California, Santa Cruz), Tom Angotti (Urban Affairs and Planning, Hunter College and The Graduate Center, CUNY), Julian Brash (Anthropology, Montclair State University),  Joel Rogers (Center on Wisconsin Strategy, University of Wisconsin), Michael Goldman (Sociology, University of Minnesota), and Sapana Doshi (Geography and Development, University of Arizona).  It also included practitioners such as Peggy Robinson (Co-Founder and Executive Director, WE-ACT For Environmental Justice), McKenzie Funk (Co-Founder of Deca, a global journalism cooperative), and Ron Shiffman (Co-Founder, Pratt Institute for Community and Environmental Development).  Co-sponsored by the Institute for Public Knowledge and the Department of Metropolitan Studies
