Communications and Media Studies Lecture: Race and Urban Communication Infrastructure

February 17 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The city operates as a complicated confluence of uneven political, economic, cultural, and environmental interests. Critical geographers and sociologists have documented how the inequitable power dynamics governing these relationships have led to segregated cities. This public lecture builds upon this research to illustrate how communication infrastructure is a fundamental element of urban planning, and how an emphasis on communication can help us to design better cities capable of combating racism and other forms of systemic discrimination.
