Slocum Hall Auditorium
This year’s symposium, “Stretchy Cities” features presentations by
leading experts and discussion among local office-holders and the
audience concerning regional urban government and a “stretched” urban

conversation in the Syracuse area on developing and managing the diffuse
The City Scripts symposia series is made possible by a unique partnership between the School of
Architecture and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
The partners believe their collaboration will insure that policy and
design are at the forefront when confronting the challenges facing
cities in the United States and around the world. The goal of the
symposia is to create an ongoing, interdisciplinary and applied dialogue
that reaches beyond the university and, ultimately, influences both
policy and design.
The “Stretchy Cities” symposium is curated by Syracuse
Architecture associate professors Elizabeth Kamell and Lawrence Davis,
undergraduate chair; Carol Faulkner, Maxwell School professor of history
and associate dean; and Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell Public
Affairs Institute within the Maxwell School.
The City Scripts series is co-sponsored by Syracuse University’s School of Architecture and the Campbell Public Affairs Institute within the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and funded in part by the Collaboration for Unprecedented Success and Excellence (CUSE) grant program.
