Dr. Yongmei Lu: Gentrification as Perceived and Experienced

DR. YONGMEI LU: Gentrification as Perceived and Experienced –Examining the Health of the Gentrified

Gentrification refers to the process of urban neighborhood change due to influx of more affluent people and households. It is usually accompanied by increase in rent, shifts in neighborhood demographic characteristics, and reshaping of economic and cultural landscape. Although gentrification may be considered as a stage of urban development, it is often controversial for urban politics and planning when the well-being of the gentrified is concerned. For a gentrified neighborhood and the people who live through the process, gentrification is an issue of housing, culture, and health. Looking through a social justice lens, Dr. Lu argues for a people-centered framework when examining the exposure to gentrification and its health impacts. This seminar talk will also discuss empirical findings on health impacts of gentrification in the east part of Austin, Texas
