Additional Information

The Urban Humanities Symposium (Salon 02) is an annual event that brings together faculty, staff, students and alumni of the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative. 

Saturday May 25th presents our main program: panels of curated conversations about projects that respond to the conference theme. Student artists will also give an extended talk about the exhibition project LA 1992/London 1780: Sounding Out the Crowd. The symposium will conclude with a keynote address by Professor Kian Goh (UCLA, Urban Planning). Lunch and dinner will be provided.

SALON 02 is organized and curated by a group of alumni from the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative. Its aim is to foster continued engagement with urban humanities theory, pedagogies, and community both within and outside the academy. Part symposium, part exhibition, part celebration, SALON 02 showcases the making of urban humanities in Los Angeles, presenting projects blurring the edges of our respective disciplines in the humanities, urban research, and design.  SALON 02 collectively represents the ongoing work of urban humanists engaged in remaking and reimagining the city.
