Event Description

The talk will be delivered by Loretta Lees and will focus on urban gentrification, a subject in which she is an international expert. Loretta is a Professor in Human Geography and Director of Research in Geography at the University of Leicester and was one of the founding members of Leicester Urban Observatory. The talk will draw on her recently published book ‘Planetary Gentrification’. A debate on the implications of Loretta’s talk to the city will follow. 

City Series is a new public lecture series in Leicester that will deliver free events relating to a wide range of urban topics, such as architecture, history and geography. This is a collaboration between Leicester City Council, De Montfort University, University of Leicester, and Loughborough University, with speakers from those institutions and from the wider community.
