Recap Last Night’s Public Lecture Series Event

On 30 January 2024, Prof. Dr. Ahmed Allahwala delivered an extremely interesting lecture on the topic "On Sociality, Survival and Intimacy: Reflections on 'Social Infrastructure' in Urban Studies" during the CMS Public Lecture Series.

He was introduced by our very own Prof. Dr. Margit Mayer, who supervised Prof. Allahwala during his studies in the past.

Prof. Allahwala is a political scientist, currently working as an Associate Professor in the City Studies program at the Department of Human Geography of the University of Toronto Scarborough. His work focuses on urban social policy, neighbourhood wellbeing, and community development within the context of contemporary state and economic restructuring in North America and Western Europe. His most recent research tackles notions of LGBTQIA+/queer activism and social infrastructure.

On 13 February 2024 at 6:15pm, the last lecture of the semester will take place with guest Prof. Dr. Thomas Hauck (TU Wien), who will address the topic "Animal-Aided Design: A Stakeholder Approach to Incorporating Wildlife into Urban Planning".

As usual, the lecture will be held in room HBS 103 and followed by an exchange of ideas over drinks.
