#Saturday School

I've put the effort into defining my work in a broader community context. Running down the list of possible ways to engage in our modern world can get confusing. Nonetheless, I still try to follow through on the idea of creating meaningful dialogue around urban issues no matter the context I'm dealing with. The academic landscape has shifted over the last five years with the emergence of digital communities linked to twitter. Hashtags like #Twitterstorians allow academic groups to communicate with each other, the impact of virtual communities are powerful and clear. #SaturdaySchool is social justice theme virtual meetup. I guest hosted on Sept 16th in conjunction to the run-up to 17th National Conference on Planning History.  You can read the virtual convo below!

 

Rethinking the City: Affordable Housing in the City and Beyond

I'm one of the curators of Rethinking the city. RTC started about six years as a group of us worked at Urban Rethink. You can learn about UR by listening to the audio documentary created in my History of Urban America class in 2013.

 

 

UR is gone, but RTC continues to explore ways to enhance the urban experience in Orlando. Check out RTC: Affordable Housing in the City and Beyond from August 26, 2017.
