Spotlight

You are invited to a public lecture and discussion of the book Green Gentrification: Urban Sustainability and the Struggle for Environmental Justice (2017), by professors and authors Kenneth Gould and Tammy Lewis. “Green Gentrification looks at the social consequences of urban‘greening’ from an environmental justice and sustainable development perspective…green gentrification that pushes out the working-class, and people of color, and attracts white, wealthier in-migrants. Simply put, urban greening ‘richens and whitens,’ remaking the city for the sustainability class.” The event will take place on November 8, 2018 at 1:45pm in Gore Hall 104.

Event is Co-Sponsored by the Disaster Research Center, the Center for Community Research and Service, the Delaware Environmental Institute, and the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice.

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) has selected its fifth class of DENIN Environmental Fellows. The two-year fellowships support doctoral students whose research interests demonstrate a bridge between science and society. Five recipients were chosen following a rigorous selection process that included a written research proposal and an interview for finalists. Candidates were expected to demonstrate an ability and commitment to communicating and transferring the benefits of their research to the wider world in addition to the intellectual merit of their research proposals.
