Elizabeth Strom's research concerns the intersection of economic development and cultural policy in American cities. As Director of Case Study Research for the Center's "Reinventing Downtown" project, she is conducting research on central city redevelopment projects in six US cities. In addition, she is currently pursuing a study of culturally-based urban development efforts in Philadelphia, Newark, Seattle and Charlotte. She has published two papers based on this research, "Let's Put on a Show! Performing Arts and Urban Revitalization in Newark," in the Journal of Urban Affairs, and "Converting Pork into Porcelain: Cultural Institutions and Downtown Development," forthcoming in the Urban Affairs Review. Both papers analyze the confluence of interests that brings public officials, arts entrepreneurs and arts patrons together in support of new cultural facilities. Strom, who received her Ph.D in political science from CUNY, is interested more broadly in urban politics, American government and public policy. She is the author of "Building the New Berlin: The Politics of Urban Development in Germany's Capital City," published by Lexington Books in 2001. She is currently Associate Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University-Newark.
