    There are actually a few more lectures that I haven't listed here that are more City Planning related. See all of the events here.

    There are also two conferences sponsored by the Penn Institute for Urban Research that are coming up this fall. I'm really looking forward to both of them.

    First up, from October 24-25, is The Shape of the New American City. Some of the highlights for me will be Kenneth Jackson, and Saskia Sassen. This conference will " discuss the latest social science research on the nation’s cities and suburbs" and will "highlight current research that outlines the trends, identifies the problems and frames areas for federal response."

    A few weeks later, from November 6-8, is Re-Imagining Cities: Urban Design After the Age of Oil. There is an incredible roster of speakers for this conference including: Diana Balmori, Jonathan Barnett, Bill Braham, Doug Kelbaugh, Stephen Kieran, David Leatherbarrow, Ali Malkawi, Jonathan Marvel, Bill Mitchell, Charles Waldheim, Marion Weiss, and Robert Yaro, among many others.

    As the name suggests, this symposium has been organized to "address the role of urban design in the face of one of the most profound and important challenges facing global society: the need to re-imagine and rethink how cities are designed and organized in a future without the plentiful and abundant oil upon which prosperous urban economies have been built."
