Manuel Pastor to deliver Economics Department's Annual Samuel Bowles Lecture
April 4, 2017
4:00 pm-5:30 pm
UMass Amherst Campus
Manuel Pastor's talk, "Equity, Growth, and Community: Progressive Economics, Metro Strategies, and Social Movements in Uncertain Times," reviews the emerging evidence on the relationship between equity and economic growth, situates this in the changing demographics of metropolitan America, and suggests how all the emerging activism at the state and metro level could bubble up to transform national discourse and policy.
Pastor is professor of sociology and American studies and ethnicity at the University of Southern California and the director of both the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity and the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration at USC. He received his doctorate from UMass Amherst.
The talk is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception in the Gordon Hall atrium.
