While scholars and commentators focus on general aspects of 'the great inversion' such as repopulated inner-cities and redevelopment projects, little attention has been paid to the hegemonic formations based on the overlapping political-economic forces of race, class, and space.

Through four empirically grounded and theoretically informed papers, this panel seeks to uncover the spatial politics of race and revanchism in the post-metropolitan context.
