RSVP Now for “Bodies in Motion: The philosophy, science, and politics of movement”

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

What does it mean to make a city equitable and just? What is equitable and just movement (transportation) in cities, how can it be achieved, and what holds us back? This work applies the philosophy and science of embodiment, along with a relatively unknown analysis of capital, to give us new answers to and perspectives on these questions. Simultaneously artistic and scientific, this work affirms existential need and edification as valid criteria for equitable and just city making policies and practices.

Come hear this discussion by Lars Christiansen, Shelby Breidenbach, and Maura Gunter. Lunch is provided.

Monday, November 12th
11:10 am – 12:20 pm, Marshall Room
