(S1E8) Radical. Urban. Work.

Taking urban studies personally, and taking the crimes and injustices done to people in the city, sometimes as part of urbanization, sometimes as its aberration – is radical work. In this episode we honor Black History Month, the 29th annual February 14th Women’s Memorial March, and the choice to do urban research that is at the frontier of disgrace, dispossession, and sometimes abject horror. With alumna Stephanie Allen and with Shadbolt Fellow Lucia Lorenzi, we raise questions of home, identity, violence and evil along with the attitudes and efforts that can carry this hard work forward.

Aluma: Stephanie Allen
Jack and Doris Shadbolt Fellow in the Humanities: Dr. Lucia Lorenzi
