MAY 10 2015: I am pleased to announce that my colleague Erit Maor and I have been awarded the Marilyn Gittell Research Assistantship to continue our work on Community Land Trusts (CLT) over the summer (2015) with the Housing Environments Research Group.  The majority of our work will center around a longitudinal study of households who purchased homes with the City of Lakes CLT located in Minneapolis, MN.  The fellowship was awarded based on the overall quality and specificity of the proposal, as well as the likelihood of publication and career advancement for the applicant, the strength of connection between the proposed work to the larger project, the urgency of the work to be done, and the evidence of connections to Marilyn Gittell‘s focus on urban studies, inequalities, democracy and claims-making, interdisciplinary dialogues, and concrete policy/ community impact.
