Presented by Katherine Levine Einstein, Associate Professor of American Politics at Boston University, will present her research on zoning politics.
Americans are deeply attached to maintaining single-family neighborhoods. This preference comes with enormous social and economic costs. Growing polarization by racial attitudes and partisanship may shape seemingly entrenched attitudes towards single-family zoning.
Einstein and co-authors explore public opinion data and the legislative politics of abolishing single-family zoning to illuminate whether racial liberalism and the nationalization of local politics have reshaped zoning politics.
