    What's the big deal about divorce? Why should we read and talk about it when everyone around us seems to be fine with it? The truth is: no matter what our family background, our age, or our state in life is, we all need to rediscover the immense impact that family life has on us and on our culture.

About The Event

Cities and neighborhoods have undergone significant changes in their cost and character over the past two decades, a process entrenched in the public’s mind as gentrification. As a new class of residents have entered underdeveloped neighborhoods, rents and housing values have increased, feeding fears of displacement and creating a growing dilemma for policy makers and the public. Cities and governments have begun to respond with increasingly broad regulations, both addressing how homes are consumed and developed. Do the benefits of gentrification for policymakers outweigh the costs for displaced residents? Where does the harm of gentrification fall, and what remedies have been effective at preventing its spread?  In this talk, Dr. Eric Van Holm will address the true prevalence of gentrification as well as its impact on cities and communities. In addition, he looks ahead to whether and when gentrification will end, and how cities will have been reshaped.

Dr. Eric Van Holm is a postdoctoral research fellow of C-STEPS, ASU. His research interests include urban and economic development, community-led change and governance, innovation, science and technology policy, and social entrepreneurship. His current projects include studying the effect of minor league baseball stadiums on downtown redevelopment and the experiences of foreign-born faculty working in American universities.
