UGA Chapel - 109 Herty Drive Athens, GA

The African Studies Institute, University of Georgia presents the 2022 African Studies Fall lecture on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 3:30pm in the UGA Chapel. This annual lecture event celebrates African Studies programming at the University of Georgia. This year's lecture will be delivered by Dr. Todd Ferry, Senior Research Associate and Associate Director, Center for Public Interest Design, Portland State University. He will be presenting on the topic, "Place, Process, and the Public: Designing for Community Impact." UGA Alum, Todd Ferry is an architect and national leader in the field of public interest design. In the fall lecture, he will discuss ways in which architecture can better support traditionally underserved communities and ecologies through radically participatory processes in areas such as homelessness, disaster recovery, and mobile placemaking. He will be sharing his work and how his experience with UGA's African Studies Institute as an undergraduate led him to a career in architecture and continues to inform his practice and role as Associate Director of the Center for Public Interest Design at Portland State University.
