Call for Researchers
Architects, planners, and engineers mobilize to make their work more just, their institutions more equitable, and their governments more accountable. Examples include, planners protesting for housing justice, architects advocating for gender equity within their profession, and civil engineers opposing unethical infrastructure projects. I’m looking for students to join the research team.
Through this project, we’ll seek to understand ways built-environment professionals mobilize to shape political power. We will investigate forms of dissent including advocacy, activism, protest, and other means to political empowerment.
The project is an ethnography of design professionals that includes a study of social media as a space of formation and dissemination of discourses of dissent.
