On Our Own: Protecting and Developing Social Housing in the Trump Era
In response to a tense post-election moment in the US, the Metropolitics editorial committee has initiated Rapid-Response Peer Review, with a commitment to quickly reviewing and publishing articles that examine organizing and activism around crucial urban issues. Our second call was for papers related to housing policy. John Krinsky argues for a sustained public commitment to housing at the state and local level—a “progressive federalism”—in order to prevent the worsening of New York City’s current housing crisis. Joshua Akers profiles Detroit Eviction Defense, a coalition that has successfully combined a judicial strategy with direct protest. And Elora Raymond deploys unique research on the location of underwater mortgages to suggest that housing, not jobs, may hold the key to reigniting progressive politics in the Rust Belt.
The Center for Engaged Scholarship is accepting applications from Ph.D students in the social sciences who have already completed all departmental and institutional requirements for the Ph.D. degree, including approval of the dissertation proposal. The only requirement not completed must be the writing and where required, the defense, of the dissertation.

Since 2013, NMEF grantees have sent teams of youth leaders and adult allies to the YLI to learn more about each other’s work and diversity, youth-led social change, and student-centered learning. In 2014, the YLI planning process integrated a Youth Planning Team made up of high school students from all over New England. The Youth Planning Team, facilitated by AISR, helps determine the design and content of each year’s YLI.
