Future research projects for Supply & Decline (S&D) will extend and expand work on land, environments, and logistics in declining American cities (current and future). S&D research models how a strong focus on empirics – quantitative, qualitative, archival, and cartographic – can deepen critical planning and geography approaches to urban decline, allowing for improved practice and more dynamic theory.

  2. New Orleans, LA: an expansive state-regulated lawn mowing economy and its consequences for neighborhoods and housing security in the prolonged aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
