    We were very fortunate to have Professor Emeritus and DCRP alumnus Pierre Clavel (MRP ’59) visiting from Cornell University to give a talk on The Progressive City in the U.S. South.

    Professor Clavel’s research and writing has focused on planning, administration, and politics — with particular application to regionalism and nationalism in Appalachia and Wales, then applied to progressive cities like Hartford, Cleveland, Berkeley, Santa Monica, Burlington, Chicago, and Boston, as well as community development in Youngstown, Ohio, and Maine.

    Pierre Clavel's books include The Progressive City (1986) and Activists in City Hall: The Progressive Response to the Reagan Era (2010). Current projects include an archived collection and webpages on progressive cities and neighborhood planning, which will include examples from the U.S. South: http://progressivecities.org/
