Cities in a Time of Crisis

June 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In this panel discussion, our speakers will draw on their research to discuss shifting and competing visions of urban life. Together, we will explore what histories of urbanization can teach us about our current moment. What have cities represented to generations past, and what do they represent today? How might American cities be transformed by COVID-19 and by the protests against racist violence that we have seen in recent days?

We will be joined by:

Isaiah Ellis, Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Religious Studies

Erik Gellman, Professor of History

Anita Brown-Graham, Professor of Public Law and Government

Moderated by Joanna Sierks Smith, Carolina Public Humanities
