In the Crosshairs: The Role of the Local State in a Contemporary Process of Neighborhood Redevelopment in Central Illinois

  • Author(s): Humphrey, Scott
  • et al.
Abstract

This essay seeks to locate the role of the local state in the redevelopment of an African American neighborhood in Central Illinois during a time of broad neoliberal urban restruc- turing. By critically engaging emergent discursive practices, housing policy shifts and changes to state power at multiple levels, we interpret the ongoing importance of private capital in advancing racialized dispossession.
