The guest speaker is Mario Small, a professor from the Sociology Dept at the University of Chicago.
By the end of the 20th century, the dominant theories of urban poverty argued that U.S. ghettoes had become isolated areas devoid of everyday institutions and disconnected from mainstream society. I examine whether the conventional models have underestimated the extent of heterogeneity across U.S. ghettoes and its consequences for the everyday experiences of those who live in them.
