Title:Displacement and Latino Populations: Cultural Markers and Gentrification in Chicago Latino Communities
Author(s):Ramirez, Xavier
Contributor(s):Rodriguez, Richard T.
Subject(s):Latina/o Studies
Abstract:The term gentrification has been utilized to describe economic innovation as well as displacement. Currently cities across the United States are facing issues of gentrification. Various populations have historically settled, moved, been displaced and relocated throughout the city. For this research I will be focusing on two specific historically Latino neighborhoods in the city of Chicago: Humboldt Park and Pilsen. Latinos are one of the populations that have come to suffer from serial displacement in the city. Presently, gentrification has become a threat to these communities. Initiatives and coalitions have been created to defend the communities from being torn apart and displacing community members while simultaneously maintaining their identities as Latino communities.
