Penn State is hosting a small conference that highlights how stratification intersects with the residential landscape of the United States. Approximately 15 innovative papers are sought for sessions on the interrelated phenomena of segregation, housing and neighborhood attainment, residential mobility, and community change. Contributions may be theoretical, empirical, or policy-oriented and can focus on trends or current circumstances. We also welcome research representing a variety of methodological styles and set in contexts ranging from metropolitan to rural. The conference format will provide ample opportunities for interaction among attendees.
