Studentification and the impacts of education-led international immigrants


Speakers: Qiyan Wu and respondents

Dr. Wu will discuss processes of studentification as a new feature and process of gentrification.

Dr. Wu’s past work has examined Nanjing, one of China’s largest urban centres, and a process that Dr. Wu calls jiaoyufication. Dr. Wu stretches his original studies to consider cities with large numbers of Chinese immigrant populations such as Greater Vancouver and Manchester, and new processes of gentrification and displacement that are being instigated by various forms and configurations of studentification.
