The public lecture series for the 2022-23 academic year is dedicated to the entwined, even hopeful, themes of Recovery/Reclamation. The racially motivated shooting at the Tops supermarket on Buffalo’s East Side in May of this year highlighted the local, national and global implications of structural bias. In response, we will engage a range of speakers who address the subject of recovery and reclamation through their work in an effort to place this recent tragedy within a broader history and perspective. How can we respond constructively to events motivated by institutionally-reinforced discrimination? The series aspires to inform on cases in which recovery and reclamation have played an ameliorative role.
Special thanks to our public programs committee, led by School of Architecture and Planning faculty members Hadas Steiner, Kelly Gregg, Jacobé Huet and Adam Thibodeaux, and supported by Monica Stage, external affairs program coordinator.
Stay tuned as additional event details are added!
