The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

The Urban Core as a Cultural Sticky Place. In Dietrich Henckel, Elke Pahl-Weber, and Benjamin Herkommer (eds.), Time Space Places.

Markusen, Ann.

Noting that most analyses of the urban core stress the role of firms and entire industries in abandoning central locations for dispersed ones, the author challenges that this line of reasoning for ignoring that workers are also urban actors and may make residential locations decisions independent of firms. Using artists as a case study, she argues that one source of contemporary urban core stability and vitality is the committments of certain groups of workers to work and live there.
