I am thinking of everyone and looking forward to coming together – virtually – in August with those who are able to participate in the remote ASA conference. It is a crucial moment for urbanists to be in conversation with one another as our current context brings to light and exacerbates longstanding inequalities and injustice. Racist state violence, police brutality, and protest suppression are pressing urban concerns that should be central to conversations within our subfield. I will be in touch in coming weeks about plans for virtual section activities during the conference, and welcome emails (my address is below) from section members about how, as a section, we can elevate these concerns and conversations within and beyond our scholarship and meetings.
Below, you will find our June Digest. Contents include:
A) Section Election Results
B) Section Award Winners
