Changing American Neighborhoods and Communities, or CANAC, is a PRI working group focused on issues that arise in research where spatial units—ranging from rural hamlets to major metropolises—are central to the phenomena under investigation.  Participants in the CANAC group have diverse substantive interests that span such topics as racial and ethnic segregation, neighborhood effects (on crime, health, educational outcomes, and the like), community growth and development, residential attainment (mobility/migration, housing and neighborhood quality), and local social organization (interpersonal networks, place attachment, etc.).


We meet approximately once a month to share ideas, approaches, and points of view.  The following discussion-oriented sessions are scheduled for Fall 2014, all at 12 noon in 605 Oswald Tower
