Proposals are invited for a session on gentrification narratives at the 2016 American Studies Association annual meeting (Denver, Nov 17-20).  The premise is that narratives are the way we make sense of the transformation of our cities.  We argue, to be sure, and we marshal data, but we rely on storytelling.  Like all narratives, those about gentrification involve plots, characters, themes, structures, tropes, and conventions.  They evoke established genres, including jeremiads, sentimental melodramas, and satires.  They come in many forms, from tweets to novels, from films to yelp reviews
