Conference Keynote Speaker – Esther Sullivan

Esther will join us as our luncheon keynote speaker and share her insights on manufactured insecurity, mobile home parks and American’s tenuous right to place.

Esther Sullivan is an Associate Professor of Sociology at The University of Colorado Denver. Her research focuses on poverty, spatial inequalities, urban governance, and housing. Her award-winning book Manufactured Insecurity: Mobile Home Parks and Americans' Tenuous Right to Place (2018) examines the social, legal, geospatial, and market forces that intersect to create housing insecurity in manufactured housing communities, which provide a central source of affordable housing in the United States. She was named a University of Colorado Denver Chancellor’s Urban Engaged Scholar, which recognizes outstanding contributions to public issues through community-engaged scholarship. Her research has appeared in American Sociological Review, Urban Studies, Housing Policy Debate, Qualitative Sociology, Journal of the American Planning Association and elsewhere, and has been covered in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, TIME, and other media outlets.
