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.
