Wouter van Gent
Wouter is docent en onderzoeker stadsgeografie aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam.

My very first research was in the field of Social Informatics. However, my current research activities follow three interrelated tracks:

  1. Spatial patterning with regard to class, life course, ethnicity and sexuality: household mobility, segregation, gentrification, regional transformations and neighbourhood dynamics
  2. Cultural politics and institutions shaping cities and regions: popular culture, the state and housing markets
  3. The political and electoral geographies of state transformation
