(S1E3) Voices from the “development side”.

What happens when Urban Studies graduates wind up working in ways that conventionally are considered to be “pro-development” and how can this work promote the future of progressive cities? Business Improvement Associations, development companies, and other business groups have been treated in urban studies scholarship as forces of conservativism and privatization of urban spaces. Have things really changed? We talk with urban studies alumni who have gotten involved on the “development side” of cities and been surprised by the scope for change in these organizations and the exciting work to be done, too.

Alumni: Landon Hoyt, André Isakov, Duncan Wlodarczak, Patrick Santoro
