People Matter Symposium

People Matter: The Human Impacts of Planned Redevelopment
This global symposium will commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of psychologist Marc Fried’s seminal publication, “Grieving for a Lost Home,” a study on the psychological impacts of redevelopment in Boston’s West End neighborhood. We will bring together scholars, practitioners, advocates and others to celebrate the enduring impact of his contribution to the field, to take stock of what we have learned, and to chart new directions for research, practice and public policy worldwide.
Sponsored by: The MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning, the Displacement Action and Research Network, The Institute for Community Health, Acupuncturists without Borders, and ITNAmerica.
