PROJECT MANAGER

The Urban Humanities Initiative at UCLA brings together the humanities, design, and urban studies to study collective life in Pacific Rim megacities.  We invite a broad audience to speculate about the history, contemporary conditions, and future of the metropolis through an intensive core curriculum for graduate students, public lectures, exhibitions, and publications.
