The economic, political, social, and cultural aspects of gentrification are all important, both in terms of the foundations of the process and potential responses to it. This seminar will overview the key terms and theories necessary to understand the process of the ‘upgrading’ or ‘revitalization’ of previously disinvested urban neighborhoods. From Lincoln Park to Humboldt Park to Kenwood-Oakland, we will look at Chicago’s manifestations of this global trend.
