"Reimagining the City-University Connection” seeks to promote a new kind of partnership by stimulating mutually beneficial research and policy relationships involving Harvard and other universities with Boston and other cities and towns in greater Boston. Scholars and practitioners from a variety of fields and communities will explore accomplishments of—and lessons from—several notable university/city initiatives. Panels of leading academics and senior practitioners will focus on four areas: preventing and responding to violence; governance and new technologies; improving urban education; and the lessons and challenges of city-university collaborations. The symposium will create novel opportunities to strengthen existing collaborations and to begin to develop new ones—particularly those that cross academic disciplines and bureaucratic boundaries.
Sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study in collaboration with the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston.
This event is free and open to the public.
