Title: Racial Discrimination in Housing: How Landlords Use Algorithms and Home Visits to Screen Tenants

Presenter: Dr. Eva Rosen

Assistant Professor at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy 

In this talk, Dr. Rosen will discuss how racial discrimination in housing operates, and intermediaries who engage in it: landlords. Exploring how landlords construct their tenants’ race within racially segmented housing markets and its effect on their screening processes, Dr. Rosen's research offers insight into the role housing plays in how racism continues to shape life outcomes—both explicitly through overt racial bias, and increasingly more covertly, through algorithmic automation and digital technologies.
