2021 CITIES@TUFTS COLLOQUIUM
Shareable is partnering with Tufts University on this ongoing lecture series hosted by professor Julian Agyeman (co-chair of Shareable’s governing board) and Cities@Tufts. The series explores equity and diversity in urban planning and design.
Initially created for Tufts students, faculty, and alumni, the colloquium has been opened up to the public with the support of Shareable and The Kresge Foundation.
Lectures are scheduled for most Wednesdays from 12-1pm est in the Spring and Fall semesters and feature a 30-min presentation and 30-min discussion. Find the upcoming schedule (and recordings of past events) below.
In order to increase the accessibility of this content, Shareable produces a human-corrected transcript, audio podcast, and video from each presentation in addition to providing additional opportunities to join the sessions live.
