Sunday Forum: “Living Apart: 21st Century Segregation in Hampton Roads”


2020-10-25 09:30 2020-10-25 10:30 America/New_York Sunday Forum: “Living Apart: 21st Century Segregation in Hampton Roads”

Presented by Professor Johnny Finn, Christopher Newport University, Dept. of Sociology, Social Work, & Anthropology The “Living Together/Living Apart” project is a long-term participatory action research project that focuses on the human experience and toll of persistent racial segregation in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Indeed, racial segregation in most major U.S. metropolitan areas is worse today than it was during Reconstruction. This did not happen by accident, nor did it happen overnight; the origins of racial segregation in the American city are deep, and go far beyond the oft-cited quip that “birds of a feather flock together.”  In this presentation Dr. Finn will provide an overview of the theoretical and historical underpinning of racial segregation in Hampton Roads, present his research team’s preliminary findings, and discuss his forthcoming book on the project. Dr. Johnny Finn is an Associate Professor of Geography in the Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology at Christopher Newport University. A critical human geographer, Finn’s research focuses on struggles over race, space, and identity. He has conducted extensive field research in Brazil, Cuba, and in Hampton Roads, Virginia, where his current research focuses on the human experience of persistent racial segregation in the 21st century. Finn has published over 25 research articles and book chapters, has attracted over $150,000 in grant funding, and has given more than 20 invited lectures across North America, Latin America, and Europe. In January 2019, Finn became the Editor-in-Chief of the award-winning peer-reviewed Journal of Latin American Geography. At CNU, Finn teaches courses human geography, human-environment interaction, globalization, urban geography, field research methods, and Latin American studies.
