Spotlight on . . . Kafui Attoh

Professor Attoh received his B.A. from Macalester College and his Ph.D in Geography from Syracuse University. His broad interests are in the political economy of cities, the politics of public space and debates in and around the idea of the “right to the city.” His research has focused on three areas: 1) the role of transit within the political economy of cities;  2) the economic impact of limited access to transportation  on disadvantaged communities and 3) the role of urban social movements (including the labor movement) in shaping mass transit policy.
