Associate Professor of History
San Diego State University
‘THE HOUSE I LIVE IN’: RACE, CLASS, AND AFRICAN AMERICAN SUBURBANIZATION IN THE POSTWAR U.S.
Friday, December 2, 2005
G115 Angell Hall
Andrew Wiese’s lecture is based on his book PLACES OF THEIR OWN: AFRICAN AMERICAN SUBURBANIZATION IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY (University of Chicago Press, 2004), just released in paperback. His talk will focus on issues of race and class, public policies and housing markets, in the suburban dreams of African Americans and the postwar development of black suburbs in metropolitan regions throughout the United States.
Professor Wiese is also coeditor of a forthcoming document collection, THE SUBURB READER, forthcoming from Routledge in 2006, and he is working on a new book project about the relationships between white and black suburbs in the early twentieth-century United States.
