This panel will offer national and regional context for the housing crisis.

Jacob William Faber is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Service in New York University's Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service and holds a joint appointment in NYU's Sociology Department. His research and teaching focuses on spatial inequality. He leverages observational and experimental methods to study the mechanisms responsible for sorting individuals across space and how the distributions of people by race and class interact with political, social, and ecological systems to create and sustain economic disparities. Through investigation of several aspects of American life, he demonstrates that a pattern of “institutional marginalization” emerges as a powerful mechanism connecting segregation to socioeconomic disadvantage.

Ellora Derenoncourt is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Princeton University and a member of the Industrial Relations Section of Princeton Economics. Derenoncourt is the founder and faculty director for the Program for Research on Inequality at Princeton Economics. She works on labor economics, economic history, and the study of inequality.

 Douglas Massey is Henry G. Bryant Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, with a joint appointment in The Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. A member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, he is the current president of the American Academy of Political and Social Science and is a member of the Council of the National Academy of Sciences and co-editor of the Annual Review of Sociology. Massey’s research focuses on international migration, race and housing, discrimination, education, urban poverty, stratification, and Latin America, especially Mexico. He is the author, most recently, of "Brokered Boundaries: Constructing Immigrant Identity in Anti-Immigrant Times," coauthored with Magaly Sanchez and published by the Russell Sage Foundation.

Moderator: Thomas J. Sugrue is Silver Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History and Director of the Cities Collaborative at New York University. He is the author or editor of nine books, including the Bancroft Prize winning, "The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit," the first sweeping history of the civil rights movement outside the south, "Sweet Land of Liberty: The Forgotten Struggle for Civil Rights in the North," and "Not Even Past: Barack Obama and the Burden of Race." His newest book is "The Long Year: A 2020 Reader." Sugrue has served as an expert witness for several voting rights, civil right, and housing discrimination cases and has been president of the Urban History Association and the Social Science History Association. 

Noon - Lunch (provided as part of the in-person event)
