This session will focus on the changing geographies of home-ownerships and renter-ships at the scale of intra-urban and inter-urban metropolises largely within North America. Home-ownerships and renter-ships are issues that have been addressed in scholarly literature largely from the perspectives of racial/ethnic segregation or income/class perspectives. Though scholars have addressed issues of race, class and other geographic attributes, not much focus had been paid on neighborhood scale geographies and how the interaction between the various factors might affect these patterns across urban areas. In this session, we bring together case studies from American urban experiences on home-ownerships and renter-ships, and how might these impact people’s affordability. Though this session will largely focus on American urban areas, we may also examine case studies from other developed regions of the world.
