The Anthropology in Transit Workshop Series presents

"Urbanity on the Move: Planning, Mobility, and Displacement”
Spring 2010 Event

Friday, May 21, 2010
10:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway, Room 3323

With a focus on processes of transformation, topics covered in this workshop will include urban planning, architecture and design, spatial and social mobility, persistent and emergent forms of ownership, and displacement. Rather than presenting a unified theory of urbanity and urbanism, this workshop encourages conversation and debate regarding disparate urban forms, and what kinds of anthropological approaches might best respond to these new urbanities and mobilities.

This is the second installment in the “Anthropology in Transit” workshop series. In the current economic and academic environment, this series leverages the concentration of anthropological scholarship in the Southern California region. Informally termed the “405/91/5” workshops, this series is mediated by particular forms of urbanism in both spatial and sociohistorical dimensions.
