Linda Ishem


Linda’s research focus is on examining the causes of urban neighborhood decline and the ineffectiveness of national and local revitalization policies. Linda is exploring alternative models and theoretical frameworks for neighborhood change and the creation of physically and mentally healthy African American, urban communities. Resident mobilization, economic stimulation, and strategic partnerships with universities are among the specific strategies Linda is exploring. Other interests include examining the relationship between researchers and the communities under study, as well as the academy’s responsibility to ensure mutually beneficial relationships with “subject” communities.
