In partnership with the Council on Advanced Studies at UChicago Grad, UChicago Urban sponsors the Urban Workshop. The workshop is a forum for graduate students and faculty to present emerging research about urban issues. Presentations tackle a broad definition of "urban," and past topics include gentrification and displacement, architecture and design, urban planning, the sociology of low-income housing, urban violence, public art policies, and more.
Workshops are open to all faculty, staff, and graduate students, and are held on Tuesdays from 12pm to 1:20pm in Social Sciences Room 108. Lunch is served.
