Professor Mark Joseph has been appointed to the Advisory Board of Cityscape, the journal produced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Dr. Joseph is the director of the National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities and is a faculty associate at the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development at the Mandel School.
The goal of Cityscape is to bring high-quality original research on housing and community development issues to scholars, government officials, policymakers, and practitioners. Published three times a year, Cityscape is open to all relevant disciplines, including architecture, consumer research, demography, economics, engineering, ethnography, finance, geography, law, planning, political science, public policy, regional science, sociology, statistics, and urban studies.
Dr. Joseph has also been selected to introduce award-winning British author Zadie Smith when she speaks at the CWRU campus on September 30 for the Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Writers Center Stage series. Smith has published four novels, all of which have received substantial critical praise. Her most recent novel, NW, was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist.
