Lecture

Vital Little Plans: A Conversation about Jane Jacobs and Public Writing

Tuesday, March 21, 2017
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Nightingale-Brown House

Many consider Jane Jacobs the most influential urban thinker of the twentieth century. In "Vital Little Plans", Zipp and Storring collect for the first time a career-spanning selection of her short writings on a wide range of topics, from urban design to economics to morality, feminism to environmentalism, protest to politics. In this talk, the editors will explore the difficult process of collecting, curating, and interpreting the anthology, the delicate balance of honoring and challenging Jacobs's legacy, and what we can learn from her dual life as a public intellectual and activist.
