Join on March 17th for a presentation by PhD students and recent graduates  as they share their personal experiences of conducting fieldwork outside of Canada.

Speakers will focus on the intersections of their own fieldwork – in/on the ‘urban’, understood as a simultaneously physical, social and political space – with research methodology, critical urban theory and broader politics. Various case studies and research questions will be discussed in the context of travelling across national, cultural, linguistic, disciplinary and/or other types of borders. Issues to be raised include acknowledging privilege and academic freedom when looking ‘outside-in’ at a specific urban context; research as an alienating/connecting experience in a familiar/unfamiliar context; the political aspect of travel bureaucracy and its technicalities.

Call For Proposals: University Student Housing: Addressing the Affordability Challenge http://www.yorku.ca/city/?p=5052 http://www.yorku.ca/city/?p=5052#respond Tue, 07 Mar 2017 15:17:24 +0000 http://www.yorku.ca/city/?p=5052 Call For Proposals: University Student Housing: Addressing the Affordability Challenge

Call For Proposals: University Student Housing: Addressing the Affordability Challenge

In 2015-2016, the presidents of the four Toronto universities collaborated on the StudentMoveTO initiative in order to develop the first-ever comprehensive survey of university student travel behavior, trends and needs across seven campuses in the GTA. A second collaborative initiative is now being proposed to address the unique housing affordability challenges faced by students attending Toronto universities.

The City of Toronto is the second most expensive housing market in Canada. In May 2016, the average cost of a detached home in the city was $1.28M, while the average cost of all home types was $782,051, according to the Toronto Real Estate Board. Rentseeker.ca (Fall 2015) suggests that the average rental cost for an apartment in Toronto ranged from $937 to $1,288 for bachelor, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments respectively. These averages do not reflect differences in location, proximity to the city centre (where three of the seven campuses of Toronto-based universities are located), or quality of housing and access to amenities. Furthermore, research conducted by Prof. David Hulchanski identifies a trend referred to as the ‘Three Cities’ in which city neighbourhoods are becoming increasingly polarized based on household income. The city’s core is transitioning to an enclave of wealthy households, while lower-income households are becoming more concentrated in the inner and outer suburbs of the GTA. The high cost of housing and the segregation of wealth and poverty in Toronto, combined with differential access to transit, present acute challenges for university students in their ability to secure affordable housing. Student incomes tend to be both low and fixed – making students especially vulnerable to increases in housing expenses.

StudentMoveTO identified the tradeoff that students are forced to make between housing and transportation. The cost of housing was identified by nearly one-quarter of survey respondents as the reason for their most recent move. Furthermore, when students were asked what would motivate them to change their main mode of transportation to campus, results indicated that “the most important motivator across all seven campuses was a change in home location; a sign students understand the relationship between transportation and housing” (StudentMoveTO, 3).

Implications of a lack of affordable housing for students are significant and include greater economic precarity, hidden homelessness, longer daily commute times, lower levels of campus engagement, and potentially compromised health and safety. Given that such a large proportion of the students attending the four Toronto universities come from lower-income families, the lack of affordable student housing can, at worst, act as a barrier to university attendance, further amplifying income disparities and negatively impacting future opportunities for increased prosperity.

In light of this situation, we propose that students and faculty from the four universities work together to:
1. Document the nature and extent of the current student housing affordability challenge, including the unique housing challenges faced by students, and

2. Identify creative initiatives that might address these housing challenges. Improved affordability may depend on zoning changes, innovative design solutions, novel financing mechanisms, social entrepreneurship or other shifts in municipal, provincial or federal policy.

The four university presidents will once again jointly contribute funds in the amount of $40,000 to support research and the formulation of potential solutions to address housing affordability for students.

Activities to be supported could include (but are not limited to) primary research, identification of international best practices, workshop/conference, design charettes, or prototype/policy development. The aim is to encourage the formation of multi-university, multi-disciplinary teams comprising both faculty and students, ideally working in concert with public sector partners and/or not-for-profit and community-based organizations.

Proposals should be based on teams comprising faculty and students from at least two of the four participating universities. If multiple proposals are received, the four presidents may opt to combine proposals and/or teams.

Proposals are due by 24 March 2017. Those interested in submitting a proposal should contact Professor Linda Peake, Director of the City Institute at city@yorku.ca

Solidarity Statement

The City Institute at York University strongly condemns the recent Islamophobic events of this past week, namely the US travel ban on those living in certain mainly Muslim-majority countries and the fatal shooting at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center in Quebec City. We pass on our deepest sympathies to all those targeted by these related events, and our solidarity to everyone fighting against such outrageous and avoidable bigotry and violence. And we stand with those in communities who are living with uncertainty and fear about the continuing impact of both Canadian and US American policy on their lives. As an academic unit that has as its mandate the facilitation and conduct of critical, diverse, interdisciplinary and collaborative urban research that advances social justice, we denounce any and all violence and will vigorously resist actions which serve to foment discord and intolerance at every level of society. The human imperative of connection demands nothing less. The Institute values diversity across race, class, gender and sexuality, and strives for inclusion and respect, which demands that we continue to ensure that the knowledge we produce is based on openness, transparency, and collaboration. We will continue to work towards a more just world and to seek ways to work across our differences, to embrace our differences, and to lift each other up in the process.

The Executive Committee of the City Institute

Urbanization in a Global Context
edited by Alison L. Bain and Linda Peake

“Urbanization in a Global Context is a contributed text that helps Canadian students understand the process of urbanization by examining cities outside Canada across the global North and South. Truly international in its approach, it emphasizes the interconnectedness of urban places and fosters analysis that identifies the similarities and differences between cities in different world regions. Each chapter focuses on different contemporary urban issues – ranging from urban policy, climate change, and gender to transportation and water governance – and introduces current urban scholarly debates, grounding them in international case studies.”

Urban Geography Workshop/Seminar Support Award

Request for Proposals

Urban Geography will award up to $2,000 to support a seminar series, workshop, or similar event which will bring together leading scholars to focus on a cutting-edge theme within Urban Geography. The expectation is that this award will be supported by the host department and institution either in-kind (e.g., staff time, event planning, space, scheduling, and other forms of administrative support) and/or in terms of more direct financial support. It is also hoped that the award will be used to leverage additional co-sponsors. Proposals are welcome from scholars and programs without regard to discipline.  However, a primary focus on Urban Geography is necessary. Funding decisions will be based upon the cohesiveness of the proposal, the support of the host department and institution, as well as funding partners, the academic reputation of the organizers, and the potential visibility of the program including its overall academic impact.

Proposals are due on November 1, 2017 and all material should be sent to Thomas Cooke, Co-Editor, Urban Geography by e-mail (thomas.cooke@uconn.edu). A decision will be made in early December, 2017. Please send the following as attachments (PDF is preferred): (1) a one-page proposal which outlines the broad themes of the project and their significance, a general plan for the project, the academic impact of the project, and any discrete outcomes, (2) abbreviated, one-page, CVs for all organizers, (3) letters of support from the home department, home institution, and co-sponsors which outline their roles, and (4) a one-page outline of the proposed schedule including potential participants. Questions can be directed to Thomas Cooke.
