sociology has focused on a relatively small number of cities, and we often view them as a research site rather than an institution. We need to broaden literatures into the literal and ﬁgurative American South and produce deeper literatures on speciﬁc cities.
“Deﬁnitely Declining” D - “Hazardous” “In St. Louis, the white middle class suburb of Ladue was colored green because…it had ’not a single foreigner or negro.’” (Rothstein 2017) Rothstein, Richard. 2017. The Color of Law. New York, NY: W.W. Norton & Co.
“Deﬁnitely Declining” D - “Hazardous” Rothstein, Richard. 2017. The Color of Law. New York, NY: W.W. Norton & Co. “Lincoln Terrace was colored red because ‘it had little or no value today…due to the colored element now controlling the district’” (Rothstein 2017)
Concentration at the Extremes (ICE) provides a sub-county measure of segregation that produces scores per feature from -1 (total segregation of the marginalized group) to 1 (total segregation of the privileged group). Formula: ICEi = (Ai - Pi )/Ti Where: Ai = Privileged [white] Pi = Marginalized [Black] Ti = Total Population Massey, Douglas. 2001. “The prodigal paradigm returns: ecology comes back to sociology.” Pp. 41-48 in Does It Take a Village?

data, and communication have not been the most pressing concerns for local public health agencies in MO. ▸ Public science and public sociology can help cut through the most challenging issues we face right now - COVID, racism, poverty. ▸ COVID-19 patterns that appear durable as cross-sections have important period effects that we need to interrogate. ▸ We need to focus on how power relations inﬂuence COVID risk. ▸ Iterating on analyses is not something we always get to do, but it is tremendously gratifying.
