Gentrification: A Tangled Web of Cause & Effect -- Research Starters Sociology
By: Baione, Amy Brogna;
2009 / EBSCO
Gentrification is a process by which marginal urban neighborhoods are rehabilitated and revitalized by incoming middle- and upper-class residents. Gentrification proceeds in stages and involves a complex web of causes and factors. Largely monolithic supply- vs. demand-side arguments have presided over the history of theoretical sociological discourse about gentrification, but a growing body of work in the field portrays the intricate interplay between supply- and demand-side behavior. Capital investment, cultural reproduction, status, as well as class conflict and other hazards such as residential displacement are examined in the case of the Village-Northton neighborhood, drawing on a 14-year ethnography of an inner city Philadelphia community of the 1970's and 1980's.
