About this series

This series examines the ecology of neighborhoods and communities in not only twenty-first century America, but across the globe.  By taking an ecological approach, the study of neighborhoods takes into account not just structures, buildings and geographical boundaries, but also the relationship and adjustment of humans to highly dense urban environments in a particular area or vicinity.  As the violent events of the past year in marginalized urban neighborhoods and communities across the country have demonstrated, “place matters.” The series contain original research about the power of place, that is, the importance of where one lives, how public policies have transformed the shape and geography of inequality and disparity in our metropolitan areas, and, the ways in which residents impacted by perceived inequality are trying to confront the problem.
