The 2012 Annual Ph.D. Symposium:
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Charles Redman
During this year’s PhD Annual Symposium, we will be exploring “urban resilience” from multiple perspectives. We will explore the diverse dimensions of resilience in urbanizing regions and the implications for urban scholarship and practice. The symposium will begin with a keynote address by Dr. Chuck Redman, Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and the Environment, Distinguished Scientist at the Global Institute of Sustainability, and Founding Director of the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University (http://sustainability.asu.edu/people/persbio.php?pid=169).
Dr. Redman’s talk will be followed by a UW faculty panel and discussion addressing different aspects of urban resilience, including social ecological, political/cultural, urban ecological, and infrastructure resilience. The goal of this discussion is to identify cross-cutting elements and divergences around resilience and their implications for scholarship and practice in urban & regional planning. Faculty panelists will lead a break out session where participants brainstorm characteristics of a resilient city. The symposium will conclude with a plenary discussion and synthesis lead by Chuck Redman.
