NYU Urban Seminar Series

NYU Urban

NYU Urban presents the line-up for this year’s inaugural, multidisciplinary NYU Urban Seminar. All seminars will be held on the second floor of the Puck Building on Mondays from 12:30 to 2pm, with lunch available at 12.  Paper titles and drafts to come.  

These talks are open to the NYU community.  We hope that this seminar will also provide an opportunity for the NYU faculty and graduate students interested in cities to come together.
