It's Gentrifying: Is the Sense of Place Lost Among Residents?
Lorita Daniels, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Gentrification, a movement of upper-income residents to a low-income area, has been widespread in the United States and abroad during the 2000s. While concerns around gentrification are often discussed by scholars and policy makers, there is mixed evidence on its repercussions for existing residents. This panel will investigate multiple aspects of gentrification and its empirical relationships to residential displacement, political displacement, and neighborhood attachment.
