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:

Markusen Named 2004-2005 Fesler-Lampert Chair.

Greco, Mike.

Ann Markusen, professor of planning and public policy at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, has been named to the Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs for 2004-2005. Markusen has taught at the University of Minnesota since 1999 and also directs the Project on Regional and Industrial Economics (PRIE) at the Humphrey Institute. The Fesler-Lampert Endowment is intended as a tribute to David Fesler's grandfathers, Bert Fesler and Jacob Lampert. The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs is appointed for a one-year period and receives approximately $42,000 for research, salary, and logistical support. The funds are jointly administered by the University of Minnesota Foundation and the University of Minnesota. Markusen plans to use the resources provided by her appointment to conduct intensive field research on artists' clubhouses and live-work spaces in Minnesota, enabling her and her colleagues to investigate more closely the social and economic benefits of such spaces for neighborhood and regional economies, as well as their impacts on artistic creativity and livelihoods. The results of this research can inform cultural policy debates at city and neighborhoods levels and will help policy makers allocate arts and economic development dollars among competing uses.
