Culture(s) in Conversation: Environments, Landscapes, and Ecologies

Culture Club, the graduate student organization of the School of Cultural and Critical Studies welcomes all members of the BGSU and Bowling Community to  this year’s Cultures in Conversation symposium: Environments, Landscapes, and Ecologies. The symposium will feature BGSU graduate and undergraduate students and faculty along with students from other colleges and universities participating in panel presentations where they explore the various ways in which we make, remake, and represent space, place, and environments, as well as relationships between the actors within them.

The featured keynote speaker is Dr. Andrew Herscher, an Associate Professor of Architecture with a joint appointment with Slavic Languages at the University of Michigan. Dr. Herscher’s research focuses on spatial politics, architecture, migration, and humanitarian concerns. He has authored multiple works including the books, The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit and Displacements: Architecture and Refugee. Dr. Herscher has also been actively involved in the "We the People of Detroit Community Research Collective,” an organization where community members and academics have collaborated on conducting citizen science research projects and producing pamphlets that mapped the Detroit water crisis and illustrated its continuing disproportionate impact on poor, Black communities. He is also a co-founder Detroit Resists, a coalition of activists, artists, architects, and community members working collaboratively to envsion an equitable and democratic city. Dr. Herscher will be speaking about his commitment to translating his academic research into community-based practice and the connection between theory and praxis.

Keynote address and panel presentation are free and open to all members of the BGSU and Bowling Green communities!
