We are happy to announce the 2018 Summer City Seminar: A Compendium of the Divided City, May 10-11th. Since its inception in 2016, the Divided City’s Summer City Seminar series has provided a forum through which creative practitioners and scholars across disciplines share ideas, research methods, and theories on issues of urban segregation in the United States and abroad.

Please join us for the third annual Summer City Seminar which will showcase the vast body of work emerging from the Divided City initiative. The seminar will run over two days at the Missouri History Museum and Washington University. The seminar will feature conversations and presentations on the Divided City’s community engagement, curriculum development, and research projects.
