St. Louis International Film Festival Panel Discussion: The Politics of Gentrification and Displacement, from Portland, Oregon, to St. Louis, Missouri

Brown 100, 1:00pm



A screening and panel discussion of Priced Out in conjunction with the St. Louis International Film Festival.

At a time of skyrocketing racial and class tensions in America, Priced Out  is an investigative and personal look at how housing prices are displacing Portland's black community and working families all cross the city.

In addition to Cornelius Swart, the filmmaker, the post-screening panel features three Washington U. scholars: Jasmine Mahmoud, American Culture Studies (AMCS) postdoctoral fellow in Inequality and Identity, who moderates; and Kedron Thomas, assistant professor of Anthropology, and Peter Benson, associate professor of Anthropology, who are the co-instructors of AMCS’s summer 2018 On Location travel/site-specific study course, “On Location: Portland Beyond Portlandia: Creative Cities and the New Economy.”
