City Scripts Symposia Series: “Stretchy Cities”

Slocum Hall Auditorium

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

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 landscape. The symposium will specifically examine the public conversation in the Syracuse area on developing and managing the diffuse built environment.

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.
