Throughout the 2010-1011 academic year, the Department of Urban Planning and the Lewis Center will present the Harvey S. Perloff lectures on The Future of Urban Planning. The lecture series, in honor of planning pioneer and long-time UCLA Dean Harvey S. Perloff, includes a diverse array of urban, regional, and planning scholars reflecting on what they see as the most vexing issues and questions confronting cities and regions over the next decade, and the types and methods of planning research needed to address them. The goal of this series is to begin a conversation among our faculty and students on the most important intellectual questions facing our field over the coming decade. The series is free and open to the public.

Professor Bates' interests lie in the connection between housing and neighborhoods, with a focus on the opportunities of low-income residents and people of color. Her research has examined urban neighborhood revitalization planning and its effects on the housing market, mortgage borrowing decisions by low-income and minority homeowners, and the recovery of the housing market in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
