Revel Sims joined the University of Wisconsin–Madison as an assistant professor in the Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture (DPLA) and the Chican@ and Latin@ Studies Program (CLS) in September 2016. Prior to joining these units, he was an Honorary Fellow at the DPLA and Visiting Assistant Professor in CLS. He obtained his PhD in 2014 from the Department of Urban Planning at University of California Los Angeles. His dissertation, “It was like dancing on a grave”: Eviction and Displacement in Los Angeles 1994 to 1999, is an analysis of displacement during the pivotal decade of the 1990s that employs a spatial analysis of over 70,000 eviction cases. The findings exposed four distinct concentrations of displacement in Los Angeles during the period and provide a basis for the argument that while everyday displacement can form a major part of urban experience bringing together systems of racialization, tenure, and finance, displacement remains generally under analyzed within urban theory, research, and policy.
