Learn how urban dwellers shape cities at next Faculty Work-In-Progress seminar

SchifaniThe campus community is invited to attend a Faculty Work-in-Progress presentation given by Allison Schifani, the Baker-Nord Center Postdoctoral Scholar in the Digital Humanities.

Schifani’s work explores ways of creating and participating in contemporary urban space, with a particular focus on the new media technologies and tactics that urban dwellers use to shape city space.

Schifani will present her work, titled “Biotechnical Ecologies: Lively Participation in the Contemporary City,” on Tuesday, April 15, at 4:30 p.m. in Clark Hall, room 206. In this talk, she will focus on contemporary, urban “do-it-yourself” art and intervention practices, looking at the intersection of technology, ecology and biopolitics.

A pre-lecture reception will be held at 4:15 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended through case.edu/humanities.
