urban inequality, equality of opportunity & socio-economic mobility

I am currently co-editing a volume on the challenges and opportunities of inequality and economic mobility as they relate to creative economies, based on the contributions to a panel I organized for the 2015 Urban Affairs Conference entitled “Contradictions of the creative city: inequality, economic mobility, and the arts” (under review by Palgrave Macmillan’s Palgrave Pivot series). In addition to co-authoring the introductory and concluding chapters, I am contributing a chapter on the relationship between cross-sectional income inequality, economic and social mobility, and creative innovation economies. Other contributors include co-editor Dr. Colby King, Dr. Laura Crommelin, Dr. Melanie Fasche, and Dr. Matt Kaliner. I also see this as the first of several research projects considering this relationship, eventually exploring it with confidential longitudinal and cross-sectional data.
