Noon - 12:50 pm

Critical geographies frameworks disrupt what can be superficial, deficit-based discourses of urban spaces and can center the experiences of residents as they worked to transform and reclaim their communities. Nancy Ares will present analyses of residents' perspectives and participation in a resident-driven school and community transformation initiative in upstate New York. She will explore the material consequences of shifting policy and practice around economic and urban development to more local entities.

Presented by Nancy Ares, Associate Professor, Warner School of Education.
