Saving Our Cities in the post-Trump Era

Sustainability Series

William W. Goldsmith

  • Professor Emeritus, Cornell University

William Goldsmith taught City and Regional Planning at Cornell and also at universities in Colombia, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Italy. His research focuses on regional underdevelopment worldwide and on race and ethnicity, poverty, and inequality in U.S. cities.

In this talk, Goldsmith will reinterpret the arguments in his prize-winning book Saving Our Cities: A Progressive Plan to Transform Urban America, which was published just before the 2016 Presidential elections. Current White House policies seem likely to deepen the pain of U.S. cities, but they may also stimulate progressive innovations from cities and even state governments.

A light breakfast will be served.

This event is co-sponsored by ASU's School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning.
