Latinos are one of the largest and fastest growing social groups in the United States, and their increased presence is profoundly shaping the character of urban, suburban, and rural places. Michael Rios, Chair of the Community Development Graduate Group at UC Davis, will discuss these and other trends as part of his recently co-edited book, Diálogos: Placemaking in Latino Communities (Routledge 2012). This is the first book written for readers seeking to learn about, engage, and plan with Latino Communities. The essays highlight the conflicts and challenges inherent in placemaking, but also how to make effective and sustainable choices for policy and planning practice in an increasingly multi-ethnic world.
Michael Rios is an Associate Professor of Community and Urban Design at the University of California, Davis. Michael was the inaugural director of the Hamer Center for Community Design at The Pennsylvania State University and past president of the Association for Community Design. He received his Ph.D. in Geography from The Pennsylvania State University, and Master of Architecture and Master of City Planning degrees from the University of California, Berkeley.
Diálogos: Placemaking in Latino Communities will be available for purchase by cash or check only.
