Urban Studies Program Winter Seminar

When: Wednesday, February 26, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The Urban Studies Program is excited to invite you to our Winter Seminar, which will be held on Wednesday, February 26th, from 2:00 PM–3:30 PM in the Social Science Conference room, C-459.

Our winter seminar is a chance for our interdisciplinary program to bring faculty together in an informal conversation about the field, how we understand and teach it. This year we are looking at some short texts, attached here, that ask what we mean by "urban." We'll discuss how we use this term in our fields, our work, and classes and how you think our program should build discussion of it.

All faculty and staff, full and part time, are welcome to attend, from all departments and disciplines, whether you have taught an Urban Studies class once, lots of times, are interested in doing so in the future, or just want to find out what Urban Studies is all about.

RSVP to Laura Tanenbaum, ltanenbaum@lagcc.cuny.edu.
