Site and History:
On the Question of Repair

Fri, Sep 11    1pm

The first in a series of discussions acknowledging and exploring the history of Columbia University’s colonialist and discriminatory practices against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. This event aims to establish a critical understanding of how the University and Columbia GSAPP came to occupy its current site in Manhattan and its relationship with the communities of Harlem, Manhattanville, and Morningside Heights, and also to create a groundwork for determining just and equitable ways that the School can move towards repair.

The event includes presentations and conversation among Erica Avrami, James Marston Fitch Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation, Mark Barksdale, Architect and Planner (‘76 MS Health Services & Design, ‘84 MSUP); Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia; and Mindy Fullilove, MD, Professor of Urban Policy and Health, The New School (‘74 MS Nutrition, '78 MD Medicine), moderated by Galia Solomonoff, Associate Professor of Professional Practice.
