New book in print! Gentrification in Vienna.

It has been bugging me for quite a while that there is no book that provides a general overview of gentrification in Vienna. But there will be one very soon! I had the pleasure to edit the first volume on this issue together with Mara Verlic. The book “Gentrifizierung in Wien: Perspektiven aus Wissenschaft, Politik und Praxis” [Gentrification in Vienna: Perspectives from research, politics and practice] aims to provide a state of the art overview of scholarly and practical knowledge on gentrification in Vienna. It brings together researchers and practitioners that write on gentrification from different perspectives. The book was funded by the Chamber of Labour in Vienna and will also be published in their book series Stadtpunkte. To get the debate going, there will be a book launch on May 6, 9:00-13:00 at the AK Wien. Authors will present their findings and there will be time for discussion and exchange. I’m posting the schedule for the event below. Unfortunately for all English speakers the book as well as the event will be in German. The book will be available in print at the event.

Wann: Montag, 06. Mai 2019, 9:00 – 13:00 Uhr
Wo: Hörsaal der TGA Plößlgasse 13, 1040 Wien, 4. Stock
