Planning, Peacebuilding, and Unruly Sites of Repair in Rwanda

Lecture by Delia Wendel, the Spaulding Career Development Assistant Professor in Urban Studies and International Development at MIT. Her interdisciplinary work draws together Urban Studies, Architectural History, Cultural Geography, and Anthropology to explore peacebuilding after protracted violence. Current research builds from ten years of work in Rwanda and informs two book manuscripts in progress. Rwanda’s Genocide Heritage (forthcoming, Duke University Press) explores relationships between genocide memory, justice, and sovereignty in the context of nascent human rights practice in the Global South. The Ethics of Stability analyzes post-genocide peacebuilding as a socio-spatial endeavor; one that is defined and challenged in the design of homes, settlements, and civic space. At MIT, Wendel directs the Planning for Peace collective and the CAST and Mellon Foundation funded “Memory Atlas for Repair” project.
