Jill Wigle

Jill Wigle is Associate Professor at Carleton University. As an urban geographer, she is broadly interested in housing, planning and urban governance issues and their relationship to precarity and equity. Her research focuses on the geographies of “informal” housing and spatial regulation, everyday planning practices, space and gendered livelihoods, and the spatial politics of neighbourhood (barrio) upgrading in Mexico City. This research has explored access to land and housing issues as well as the ways that “formal” planning maps and programs intersect with planning practices to produce “informality” in different territories of the city.
