Abstract:
Though its causes have been theorized, little is understood about why gentrification often transforms neighborhoods in radically different ways. This thesis links previous research on gentrification with the concept of domestic property interests in an effort to better understand the micro-level processes involved in the production of a gentrified landscape. Once identified as Tucson's skid row, Tucsonans now value Barrio Historico as a historic, Mexican-American neighborhood. Some residents argue that gentrification, though slow and incomplete, is destroying the neighborhood's sense of community and tradition. Interviews with twenty-two residents assessed their domestic property interests and identified the ways in which residents either resist or encourage development. The analysis revealed how conflicts among residents with differing interests and ideological perspectives contribute to the production of the neighborhood landscape. Though not unproblematic, the analysis of residents' domestic property interests complements previous macro-scale approaches by providing a contextually based understanding of neighborhood change.
