Tucson Humanities Festival – 'Urban Humanities: New Practices for Reimagining the City'

When: October 02, 2019 5:30pm

Speaker: Jonathan Jae-an Crisman, UA Department of Public and Applied Humanities

About the talk: What will the city of the future look like? Many of the most innovative urban practices shaping our cities today, from modes of transportation to housing patterns, can be found in cities of the past. Consider cycling, co-housing, and night markets: urban technologies that have been with us from hundreds of years, yet are now seeing a renaissance in cities all around the world. But their past forms also inform us about important considerations for the environment, for equity, and urban vitality. If we want to imagine and make the next city, we can do so by exploring the past, by going back to the future.
