The Beirut Urban Lab is happy to announce its first Webinar Series Housing and Financialization in Times of Crisis. The series presents public interventions by scholars and activists researching the impacts of the compounded effects of financialization and overlapping crises on the right to housing at the local, national, and global levels.
Dystopias and Utopias Amidst the Crisis: Is a New Urban Model Underway?
Raquel Rolnik, Professor of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Sao Paulo
Cesare Di Feliciantonio, Lecturer in Human Geography, Manchester Metropolitan University
Mona Fawaz, Professor of Urban Studies and Planning, American University of Beirut
Howayda Al Harithy, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design, American University of Beirut
The webinar series is an adaptation of AUB’s City Debates 2020 conference into an online lecture and discussion series. The shift online was originally triggered by the impossibility of travel and in-person meeting imposed by the COVID19 pandemic globally. It however offers us the opportunity to engage a wider audience that we hope will participate in our discussions. The series will run as of July 2020 and into Fall 2020. We are grateful to colleagues, particularly the guests of City Debates 2020 for the generosity and flexibility they have demonstrated in accommodating this new format.
