Remaking Post-Industrial Cities with Don Carter
Tuesday, October 23 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm
Come for a lecture by Professor Don Carter on his book Remaking Post-Industrial Cities: Lessons from North America and Europe. Carter’s book examines the transformation of post-industrial cities after the precipitous collapse of big industry in the 1980s. Carter brings together in-depth case studies of five cities in North America (Buffalo, Detroit, Milwaukee, New Orleans, and Pittsburgh) and five cities in Europe (Bilbao, Liverpool, Rotterdam, Ruhr Region, and Turin). The book documents their recovery in the thirty-year period from 1985 to 2015.
