inequality & economic mobility research

urban inequality, equality of opportunity & socio-economic mobility

I am interested in inequality and economic mobility as they relate to creative economies, based in part on the contributions to a panel I organized for a recent Urban Affairs Conference entitled “Contradictions of the creative city: inequality, economic mobility, and the arts.” I also see this as the first of several research projects considering this relationship, eventually exploring it with confidential longitudinal and cross-sectional data. This work will also be put together into a monograph on creative capital and its role in addressing urban economic inequality and social mobility.
