Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove, Urban Alchemy: How Urbanists Can Save Us

October 21, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

We invite you to attend the Program on Urban Studies’ 15th Annual Model Scholar Lecture, Urban Alchemy: How Urbanists Can Save Us, with Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove, Professor of Urban Policy and Health at The New School.

What if divided neighborhoods were causing public health problems? What if a new approach to planning and design could tackle both the built environment and collective well-being at the same time? What if cities could help each other?

Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove, the acclaimed author of Root Shock, uses her unique perspective as a public health psychiatrist to explore and identify ways of healing social and spatial fractures simultaneously. Using the work of French urbanist Michel Cantal-Dupart and the American urban design firm Rothschild Doyno Collaborative as guides as well as urban restoration projects from France and the US as exemplary cases, Fullilove identifies nine tools that can mend our broken cities and reconnect our communities to make them whole.
