The Urban Scene – November 9, 3pm
The second of the Urban Studies Speaker Series will be held on Thursday, November 9 at 3pm. Located in the Troy Moore Library at 25 Park Place on the 23rd floor. Our guest speaker, Dr. Klaus van den Berg, will talk on “The Urban Scene: Architecture and Theatricality.”
Dr. Klaus van den Berg will examine the intersection of urban studies and the arts. Drawing from cases across Atlanta including the BeltLine, the Civic Center, the Rialto Theater, and GSU’s campus, his talk will explore the city as a site of creative place-making and the urban as a locus for new forms of cultural performance and expression.
