Panel 7

"Social Housing – No Future in the Post-Fordist City?" 


Nicholas Bloom is associate professor of American history at the New York Institute of Technology.

Owen Gutfreund teaches history and urban studies at Barnard College, and is Director of the joint Barnard-Columbia undergraduate Urban Studies Program. His specialty is urban history in the United States, as well as from a global perspective. His most recent book, 20th Century Sprawl: Cities, Highways, and the Decentralization of the United States (Oxford University Press, 2004), explains and describes the overhaul of the U.S. over the last century, as government highway-building programs have encouraged automobile use and guided the citizenry towards the undeveloped countryside, away from crowded and congested urban areas, with devastating consequences for American cities.
