About this event

From Planetary to Provincial Gentrificiation: Lessons for Leicester follows a sold-out inaugural event and is the second of the City Series lectures.

The talk will be delivered by Loretta Lees and will focus on urban gentrification, a subject in which she is an international expert. Loretta is a Professor in Human Geography and Director of Research in Geography at the University of Leicester and was one of the founding members of Leicester Urban Observatory.

The talk will draw on her recently published book ‘Planetary Gentrification’. A debate on the implications of Loretta’s talk to the city will follow.

Robert Harland, a lecturer in the School of the Arts, English and Drama, is one of the founding members of the Leicester Urban Observatory.
