Faculty Affiliates Studying People and the City

This page shows all SGCI Faculty Affiliates who have selected People and the City as either a primary OR secondary Research Theme.

The SGCI uses six broadly-defined Core Research Themes, pictured at right, to better categorize UConn’s research capacity on topics involving cities.  Our Faculty Affiliates are grouped according to these six themes.  Affiliates self-select one primary Research Theme that best represents their research and scholarship, and — since cities-related research is often interdisciplinary — they typically select one or more secondary themes as well. 

Click on any Faculty Affiliate name to see a detailed profile, including contact information, research interests, recent cities-related publications, useful links, and more.  Use the links in the sidebar at left to browse SGCI Faculty Affiliates by last name or Research Theme.

You can learn more about the SGCI’s Faculty Affiliate program here.
