Personal profile

David Wilson is currently investigating projects pivoting around the political economy of the U.S. city. Specific projects examine the politics of urban growth regimes in U.S. cities, the politics of competing discursive formations that generate gentrified neighborhoods and poverty communities, and the racializing of the contemporary urban issues of crime and city growth. Professor Wilson has served on the editorial boards of Urban Geography, Professional Geographer, Social and Cultural Geography, Syracuse University Press (Society, Space, and Place Book Series), Inter-Cultural Studies, the International Encyclopedia of Human Geography project and ACME: International Journal for Critical Geography.

David has been a visiting scholar at universities in China, Germany, and Canada. He was recently listed in a global study of urban geographers as the eleventh most productive scholar in this field in the world.
