Join us for the Hartford Real Estate Research Symposium on 5/2 with Dr. Emily Yen

Join us Thursday May 2nd for the Hartford Real Estate Research Symposium. Urban studies students enrolled in Dr. Emily Yen’s CTYP-211 “The Politics of Real Estate” Community Learning course will present their research projects on Hartford-based stakeholders. In the course, students examine the political, social, and economic dimensions of real estate in Hartford and New York– specific topics included growth machine politics, rent control, gentrification, tenant organizing, and Business Improvement Districts. For the Community Learning component, teams of students conducted and transcribed an interview each with a Hartford person involved in real estate issues.
