Penn State Stratification Conference: Residential Inequality in American Neighborhoods and Communities

Event Date: 
Friday, September 12, 2014 (All day) to Saturday, September 13, 2014 (All day)

Leading researchers will present 20 papers that highlight how stratification intersects with the residential landscape of the United States. Thematic sessions examine the linkages between socioeconomic and ethnoracial statuses and four spatial sorting processes: segregation, locational attainment, residential mobility, and neighborhood change. State-of-the-art substantive work is featured, with many of the papers employing innovative methods or data to speak to issues of both theoretical and policy importance. The program format is designed to encourage interaction among attendees.
All members of the Penn State community are invited.
