Abstract

Across the US and in much of the developed world, many urban authorities regard gentrification as one of the only paths to neighborhood regeneration. Using activism in Pilsen, Chicago, as a case study, Winifred Curran argues that while the displacement of lower income residents is an essential component of gentrification, its worst effects can be alleviated when locals have a say in how their neighborhoods are redeveloped.
