"Activism X Climate Change" Panel by Yasmine Lari
The Critical Urbanisms Lecture Series this fall will be held online via Zoom. Our 3rd session theme is "Activism X Climate Change", which features Yasmine Lari's contributions on "situated knowledge" practices in the context of climate disasters and how they reframe our understandings of the urban, followed by panel discussions moderated by CU students. The session is open to everyone to attend and participate.
Yasmeen Lari is Pakistan's first female architect. She has been involved throughout her career in the intersection of architecture and social justice. Her NGO, Heritage Foundation Pakistan, has been taking on humanitarian relief work and historical conservation projects in rural villages all around Pakistan. Her lecture will explore local and "situated knowledge" practices in the context of climate change disasters, including indigenous knowledge and wisdom from historical experiences. She's going back to the Architectural situated heritage to reduce the carbon foot and develop low carbon and low-cost structures that can withstand the impact of climate change.
This year, the series offers a new pedagogical format in which Master students will be the moderators of the panel discussions and serve as the first interlocutors with our guests.
