We are pleased to announce that the Urban Studies Program at Brown University is now a member of Places’ network of academic partners.

The program joins our growing group of schools that provide core funding for the journal. Urban Studies, which bridges from the humanities to the social sciences, is the first undergraduate program in our partner network. With institutions ranging from North America to Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa, the network is a diverse group that shares Places’ commitment to public scholarship on architecture, landscape, and urbanism — to building a larger public constituency for serious design thinking.

Samuel Zipp, director of the Urban Studies Program, will represent the school on Places’ Board of Directors.
