About this event

Cities@Tufts is a cross-disciplinary academic initiative that recognizes Tufts as a leader in urban studies, planning, and sustainability. Join us as we welcome scholars and create spaces for innovative discussions on complex urban and environmental issues.

Rashad Williams is an incoming assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. His interdisciplinary research crosses the boundaries of urban planning, urban politics, and the critical philosophy of race to study the urban expressions of the black reparations movement.

He has coined the term reparative planning to describe the implementation of redress policies at the urban scale. Reparative planning should -- and as this comparative analysis shows can -- address distributive, moral-symbolic, and structural injustices. In this comparative analysis, I discuss three actually existing models of reparative planning, linking each to debates within social and political theory.

Following the lecture, there will be a Q&A moderated by Julian Agyeman.

This event is part of the Cities@Tufts Virtual Colloquium, an ongoing open lecture series from the Tufts School of Urban and Environmental Planning and Shareable.
