The University of New Mexico's School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) is revisioning its classic lecture series.
The Contesting Conversation Series is in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the renewed fights to end racism and structural inequality. UNM’s SA+P has opted for a conversation series rather than a lecture series, saying now is the time for critical dialogue, difficult discussions and debate.
These are the upcoming lectures:
