What’s it like to be a young person living in a city that just experienced one of the most significant increases in cost of living? Or an established resident who is now threatened to be displaced by more affluent residents who have sparked new development and investment? Join visual anthropologist Esteban Gómez on a virtual tour of Denver, as he shares a moving look at how neoliberal policies, liked transit-oriented development (TOD) and school choice, have impacted the city’s health and education. He'll be joined by Senior Associate Dean Andrea Stanton for an open question and answer from the audience.
Guests are able to join the event either in person, which includes a reception prior to the event, or virtually. Details available in the registration confirmation.

He has served as a co-host for Sapiens: A Podcast for Everything Human, and is currently producing a film on the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II called, Snapshots of Confinement. His most recent research has focused on the effects of transit-oriented development and gentrification on urban school segregation and school enrollment decline in the Denver Public School system.
