Constructing Community

In episode 7, we discuss the role that community development corporations (CDCs) play in constructing communities with Jeremy Levine, Associate Professor of Organizational Studies and Sociology (by courtesy) at the University of Michigan and author of Constructing Community: Urban Governance, Development, and Inequality in Boston. Topics include: the role that CDCs have in local development projects and neighborhood representation, earlier more top-down approaches of urban renewal in contrast with today's more bottom-up community development approaches, and the complexities of both mechanisms.
