Service-Learning in Design and Planning: Educating at the Boundaries

Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 4:00pm

Mann Library, Room 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Want to learn more about community-engaged efforts to transform and improve public spaces?

Join Paula Horrigan, associate professor in Landscape Architecture at Cornell, for a Chats in the Stacks book talk about Service-Learning in Design and Planning (New Village Press, January 2013).  Linking professional work and social change, the book radically revises the standard protocol for university-initiated design/build projects in the community. A collection of case studies by design educators Paula Horrigan, Cheryl Doble, and Tom Angotti, the book critically explores the current practice of community-engaged learning in architecture, landscape design, and urban planning.

Horrigan, a longtime participant and faculty chair of the Cornell
Faculty-Fellow-in-Service Governance Board, advocates for courses
integrating academic service-learning and community-based research.
Her most recent project is the Hatch funded From Rust-to-Green Places and Networks: Mapping a Sustainable Future for Upstate New York

Light refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase and signing. The book talk is funded by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund.
