Abstract

This thesis will explore the actual forms, patterns and perceptions of gentrification in Burlington, Vermont from 1981 until the present day. Drawing on debates within urban geography regarding the processes and practices that make up gentrification, I will conduct empirical research with key informants and on archival material to better understand Burlington’s specific experience with gentrification. To accomplish this, I will be using mixed methods that combine critical mapping of the patterns of land use and real estate values with interviews of local stakeholders involved in urban planning. The resulting maps will serve as a resource for city residents and urban planners to better visualize over time the gentrification narratives in Burlington .
