North Gate Hall, Berkeley Room 105

US cities are bubbling up, taking new shapes and making new sounds. Some downtowns are becoming tourist destinations, sparkling like never before. Others are as dead as Babylon. Some places that until recently were bedroom communities are now job-packed, high-property-value visions of an ethnically integrated, high-technology future. Others are a darkly punk hallucination featuring gangs, gridlock and drugs. How does this new weave of urban events fit together?

Sponsored by the Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, College of Environmental Design, the Program on Housing and Urban Policy and BRIDGE Housing Corporation. Faculty, professionals, students, and community members are invited to attend. For more information, call Brad Inman at 510-290-9447 or email [email protected].
