Urban Studies Conference
November 7, 2017
The Urban Studies Committee will be hosting our annual student conference on Tuesday, November 7th . This year’s theme is “Cities Rising: Fighting for Our Rights in the Age of Trump”
Panels will be held on the following themes. This is a great opportunity for students to hear first hand from activists on the front lines of struggle and to ask questions in an interactive format. We encourage faculty to bring their classes, and if your classes don’t meet at this time, to encourage their students to attend.
