Narratives of Neighborhood Development: A Case Study from Downtown Los Angeles

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examines the process of gentrification by analyzing recent redevelopment of Downtown Los Angeles. Using the Little Tokyo/Arts District as its case study site, this paper examines the intersection of race, class, and neighborhood identity by examining how discourse drives development, both in narratives of support as well as narratives of resistance. As such, the paper aims to understand how actors and institutions reshape the material and discursive landscape of the city; Likewise, this study also aims to understand the character of local resistance to development and displacement. This paper draws from ethnographic observation, in-depth interviews and historical research about neighborhood change in Downtown Los Angeles. While this research aims to tell a story about one neighborhood's particular trajectory, it casts a wider lens by situating development in Downtown Los Angeles within the larger political economy.
