Announcing IAAR’s 2018-2019 Faculty Fellow:
Mai Thi Nguyen
City and Regional Planning
Professor Nguyen, an Associate Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of City and Regional Planning, has been selected for IAAR’s Faculty Fellowship for the 2018-2019 academic year. Nguyen’s research focuses on housing policy, social and spatial inequality, and resilient communities. During the fellowship she will complete a book manuscript for her project, In the Shadow of Ferguson, which explores the ties between the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court ruling and the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Using a structural analysis that examines racism and inequality, the study documents over 100 years of critical events relating to housing and urban policy in St. Louis, Missouri. Professor Nguyen will give a talk on her research in Fall 2018.
