Emerging Voices

Since 2009, PARG has organized the "Emerging Voices" speaker series. We invite up to three outstanding emerging scholars to campus per year who have completed a Ph.D. in architecture or urban planning in the past five years. We organize a lecture, a dinner, and a colloquium with doctoral students for each invited speaker. The primary goal of the Emerging Voices RIW is two-fold: to expose the doctoral students of architecture, urban planning and affiliated fields to the best new research in our areas, and to expose them to new scholars in our field. We aim to learn from these scholars not only in terms of the content of their research, but also to learn from them in terms of career development and networking. Since its inception in Winter 2009, we have sought parity in speaker representation, including but not limited to gender, race, color, and sexuality. Our series is generously supported by an interdisciplinary workshop grant from the Rackham Graduate School. We receive supplementary support from the Taubman College Lecture Fund.
