Pilsen: An Historical Geography of Political Activism

Dr. Euan Hague
Professor of Geography, Director of School of Public Service,
DePaul University
Tuesday, Feb. 9 | 7 p.m.
In this talk, DePaul University Professor of Geography, Euan Hague, takes a tour through the historical geography of political activism in Chicago’s Lower West Side Pilsen neighborhood. From the role of anarchists and labor unions in the late-19th Century, to the immigrant rights and anti-gentrification protests of the early-21st Century, Pilsen has been at the center of many struggles over life, work, housing, and education in Chicago.
