Room 1410, SFU Vancouver (Harbour Centre), 515 W. Hastings St.
Speakers: Qiyan Wu and respondents
In this talk Dr. Wu will discuss processes of studentification as a new feature and process of gentrification. Dr. Wu’s past work has examined Nanjing, one of China’s largest urban centres, and a process that Dr. Wu calls jiaoyufication. Dr. Wu takes the example of Nanjing and using theories of Bordieu and Smith, among other theorists, and stretches his original studies to consider cities with large numbers of Chinese immigrant populations such as Greater Vancouver, Canada and Manchester, UK and new processes of gentrification and displacement that are being instigated by various forms and configurations of studentification.
