Thursday, March 12, 2015 12:00 pm to Wednesday, March 25, 2015 1:00 pm

CSREA Conference Room, Hillel 303


What I Am Thinking About Now: John Logan, Professor of Sociology; Director, Spatial Structures in the Social Sciences

There is wide agreement that most major Northern cities had black ghettos by 1940, after two decades of the Great Migration. This talk will analyze trends in ten Northern cities decade by decade from 1880 to 1940. It will present evidence that processes separating blacks from whites were already in play as early as 1880 or 1900, predating the era of redlining, firebombings, and restrictive covenants.

What I Am Thinking About Now is an on-going informal workshop/seminar series to which faculty and graduate students are invited to present and discuss recently published work and work in progress.

Space is limited. Please RSVP: [email protected]
