The Hellenic Heritage Foundation Chair in Modern Greek History and the Hellenic Studies
Program, the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, the Department of History, the City Institute at York University (CITY), and the Urban Studies Program invite you to the talk by Professor Thomas Maloutas, Harokopio University, Athens on:

THE SOCIAL GEOGRAPHY OF ATHENS AND THE IMPACT OF THE CRISIS

The talk will focus on processes and patterns of class and ethnic division in
the Greek capital. Theoretically expected outcomes (social and spatial polarization, gentrification) will be confronted to the empirical reality of an ‘ordinary’ metropolis. Weak gentrification, spatial
entrapment of social mobility in working-class neighborhoods and ‘vertical’ segregation (i.e. the
vertical social and ethnic hierarchies massively present in the apartment buildings throughout the
city’s densely built areas) will be discussed as outcomes related to contextual parameters preventing an accelerated sociospatial polarization.

The impact of the crisis will be the concluding part of the talk. Important and precipitous changes
(sharp increase of vacancies in housing and business locales, substantial growth of homelessness etc.) have not (yet) affected the city’s social patterns, especially due to the almost complete standstill in the land and housing markets.

Friday, November 11th: 12:00 – 2:00
Kaneff Tower, Room 901

Coffee/refreshments will be served.
Everyone is welcome.

The City Seminar: The Ghost Economy

Join panelists Tom Slee, Vicki Trottier, Steven Tufts, and Kristyn Wong-Tam as they critically address the impact of short-term rentals or ‘ghost hotels’ in Toronto. Panelists will discuss how platforms facilitating short-term rentals, such as AirBnB, affect housing affordability, decent work in the hospitality sector, and residential living in the city. The panel will also discuss policy implications for regulating ghost hotels in the growing gig economy.
