The Red House Dinner Series: Rosemary Ndubuizu, 3/19

January 31, 2018 Past, Events 0

The Red House looks forward to hosting Professor Rosemary Ndubuizu on March 19th at the Red House (1237 37th St. NW) from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Rosemary Ndubuizu is an Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Georgetown University. Dr. Ndubuizu is an interdisciplinary scholar who studies how housing policies are shaped by race, gender, political economy, and ideology. Her untitled manuscript-in-progress historically and ethnographically traces how low-income black women have been affected by post-1970s changes in public and affordable housing policies and advocacy. Her research project also examines the contemporary landscape of affordable housing policy and politics to better understand why low-income black women remain vulnerable to eviction, displacement, and housing insecurity in cities like the District of Columbia. Additionally, her work presents the organizing challenges low-income black women tenant activists in D.C. face as they organize to combat the city’s reduction and privatization of affordable housing

About the Red House Dinner Series:

The Dinner Series brings together Georgetown faculty and students in informal, intimate conversations around innovative approaches in higher education. Last year’s dinner guests included Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Professor Cal Newport, Professor Marc M. Howard, and many more faculty across campus. Dinners are capped at around 15 students, to allow for exciting conversations that may not happen in the classroom or office hours.
