Dean's Colloquium with Author, Journalist, and Professor, Carlo Rotella
THE WORLD IS ALWAYS COMING TO AN END
In his new book, Carlo Rotella returns to his old neighborhood on Chicago's South Side to find that the hollowing out of the middle class has left haves and have-nots separated by an expanding gap that makes it hard for them to recognize each other as neighbors. Blending journalism, archival research, and memoir, The World Is Always Coming to an End investigates the many and often conflicting meanings of neighborhood.
