Dr. Mario Luis Small
Grafstein Family Professor, Harvard University
By the end of the 20th century, the dominant theories of urban poverty argued that U.S. ghettos had become isolated areas devoid of everyday institutions and disconnected from mainstream society. Dr. Small examines whether the conventional models have underestimated the extent of heterogeneity across U.S. ghettos and its consequences for the everyday experiences of those who live in them.
