Seeing Cities Change: Local Culture and Class with Author Dr. Jerome Krase

In this lecture, Dr. Jerome Krase will discuss how ordinary streetscapes reflect the changing cultural and class identities of neighborhoods at the Oliver Wolcott Library on Tuesday, August 12 from 7:00- 8:00 p.m.

 
PRLog - Jul. 29, 2014 - LITCHFIELD, Conn. -- Cities have always been dynamic social environments for visual competition between groups who live and work within them.  In recent years cities have been transformed by the by the ethnic and racial migration and the gentrification of once socially marginal areas of the city.

Seeing Cities Change demonstrates the utility of a visual approach to the study of ordinary streetscapes to document and analyze how the built environment reflects the changing cultural and class identities of neighborhood residents.  In this lecture, Dr. Jerome Krase will discuss the manner in which these changes relate to issues of local and national identities and multiculturalism, and will present studies of various cities on both sides of the Atlantic.

Jerome Krase is a noted sociologist, author, and social advocate.  He is a Murray Kopelman Professor and Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn College of The City University of New York.  He received his BA in Sociology at Indiana University and Ph.D. at New York University.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the event.  All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.  Space is limited.  Registration is required and can be done by calling 860-567-8030 or logging onto www.owlibrary.org and clicking on Programs/Adult Programs.
