Elizabeth Korver-Glenn is a PhD candidate in Sociology (PhD expected May 2017). Her research explores racial meaning-making and inequality via institutions and interactions critical to the (re)production of segregated city markets and spaces. In her dissertation, she focuses specifically on Houston's urban housing market, illuminating institutional real estate processes and interactions that, together, constitute racial projects with powerful discriminatory effects.
