About this Event

This presentation will be about a research under the title of mapping for social justice for the ongoing revolution in Iran. This research is a collaboration with the Situ research group. Working on this research project with Situ helps to: Document this unprecedented uprising led by women in the middle east/ world. As an architectural designer and educator, It would be interesting to see the relationship between people's behavior and the space they occupied during protests. For instance, it would be interesting to analyze what happens at the corners, boundaries, or centers of urban areas when peaceful protests turn violent. Because of such collective mental phenomena, we may find recognizable/repeatable patterns between different protest maps across various locations. One of the potential research outputs could be a handbook for urban designers and architects about how different urban spaces could empower protestors as active populations fighting for social justice.
