Diversity Hour: What Is the Middle East?
Friday, Nov 5, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Online - Zoom meeting
Diversity Hour embraces the diverse community that embodies our school by creating a space for students, faculty, and alumni to share art, architecture, and social dynamics native to their homeland so that we can learn and discuss on a platform to bring awareness within our community. We want our knowledge of architecture to reflect the cultures of our next generation of architects and value group discussions and participation from all participants.
Starting off the lecture series this year is fifth-year B Arch student Hamees Gabr. Hamees will shed light on the term "Middle East." She will discuss who it stands to benefit, its origin, and who is harmed by its consistent usage.
Additionally, to cement this powerful lecture, AIAS, FAME, SSA (with the presence of Dean Gutman), and NOMAS are hosting an informal meetup to visit the Cairo exhibit at the Center for Architecture on Saturday, November 6, at 3:00.
