Topic: The Changing Face of Houston and America: Tracking Responses to the Economic and Demographic Transformation through 34 Years of Surveys
Speaker: Dr. Stephen Klineberg, Professor of Sociology, Rice University
The Houston region recovered from the collapse of the oil-boom in the 1980s to find itself in the midst of the new high-tech, global economy and remarkable demographic revolution. These are the same trends that are refashioning the social and political landscape across all of urban American, perhaps nowhere more clearly seen than in the Houston context. We review the findings from 34 years of systematic survey research (1982-2015) to explore the way these consequential transformations are unfolding both in Houston and across the nation, and to consider their implications for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
