She will discuss the mutual relationship between post-industrial place-making and neoliberal urbanism. Her talk will also focus on the structure of public-private partnerships, the marginalization of blue-collar workers in civic life, and the physical redevelopment of Pittsburgh.

Her research explores 20th century U.S. social and political history, comparative urban history, policy history, and transnational and global approaches to U.S. history.
