204 Maxwell Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Isidor Wallimann, Visiting Research Professor at PARCC is the founding president of Urban Agriculture Basel.  He  will discuss the nature of the urban agriculture movement, what it means to participants and how they tend to identify with it. In so doing, the strengths and weaknesses of the movement will be addressed, including how they are reflected in movement vocabulary.  Urban agriculture will also be discussed from a food policy and sustainability perspective, whereby lines of conflict following from daily practice will be identified. Urban Agriculture Basel and other locations of practice will serve as points of illustration.

Conversations in Conflict Studies is sponsored by PARCC - Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration. Follow us @PARCCatMaxwell, tweet #ConvoInConflict

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
