LiveMove Speaker Series: Multiple Worlds, Shared Streets
Speaker: Dr. Adonia Lugo, Ph.D., University of California, Irvine
Dr. Adonia E. Lugo is an urban anthropologist and a leading voice for a diverse bike movement. She studies the conflicting, complex ways that people inhabit cities and streets as human infrastructure. Using bicycling, walking, and riding transit as embodied methods for observing the power dynamics of urban space, she draws on the tradition of flânerie and feminist critical theory's situated knowledge to argue that our social positions influence what we consider normal in street life. Dr. Lugo believes that cross-cultural understanding and respect for diverse realities are central to fostering sustainable mobilities.
Join us on Thursday, April 16th for her presentation on Multiple Worlds, Shared Streets: A Cross-Cultural Approach to Sustainable Transportation.
