The Urban & Regional Planning program is proud to present its Spring 2015 public lecture series, The City Disrupted. Building on last fall’s exploration of large urban investments, the spring lectures will explore short-term transformations in cities driven by the impacts of new technologies, shifting economies, the environment, new social networks, or governance. 

Stakeholders from across the university and the community will join us in a series of dialogues that seek to answer the question: Where does community stewardship reside in the disrupted city?

Details for specific events are listed below. These events are free and open to the public, so we strongly encourage you to RSVP in advance to ensure your seat.

The series is hosted in the auditorium of the Georgetown downtown campus at 640 Massachusetts Avenue, NW—conveniently located within walking distance of stations serving all Metro lines.
