NE @ MIT is a proud co-sponsor of the conference Economic Growth and Environmental Constraints. Speakers include Brian Czech of CASSE, Sonia Kowal of Zevin Asset Management and John Gowdy of RPI. The conference is on Saturday April 26 in MIT’s Stata Center: 32- 123. For more information see the conference website.
The panel will bring together activists, scholars and planners working on the front lines of the struggle to maintain and strengthen communities affected by gentrification and displacement in the greater Boston area. The panel is hosted by MIT’s Displacement Research & Action Network (DRAN), an international collaboration drawing attention to the global impact of development-induced displacement. As part of DRAN’s efforts to build new theory and evidence in a variety of world regions, this panel seeks to deepen the conversation on gentrification and evictions in American cities.
The event will be held Tuesday, April 15th from 5-7pm in 9-450A&B.

This five-week series builds on our student research presentations, invited speaker series, and student led workshops. It rolls all three programs into one “learning series.” Running from April 9- May 7 from 12:30 – 2 pm, with this series, we seek to strengthen our interdisciplinary student network; facilitate the sharing of research findings and skills throughout and beyond DUSP; provide a forum for student researchers to receive input and critique from a diverse audience; connect to the numerous relevant organizations in the Boston area and beyond; and, more generally, provide an open space for the exploration of new economic ideas.
We hope to see many of you there, over lunch.
