Spaces of Conflict Conference & Exhibition

October 25, 2019 | College of Architecture & Environmental Design, Kent State University

Our built environment has always been affected and transformed by conflict.

Consequently, design professionals are directly or indirectly influencing the processes of conflict through infrastructural development, urban and architectural interventions, planning policies, and public space making. By bringing together scholars, educators, researchers, and practitioners, we aim to debate, exchange ideas, and theoretical perspectives on the role of space in relation to different forms of conflict.

The Spaces of Conflict conference is organized as part of the 50th Commemoration of May 4, 1970 event at Kent State where the Ohio National Guard shot four of the KSU students and injured nine during the demonstration event against the US war in Vietnam and Cambodia. This event triggered many nationwide protests and demonstrations in other universities.

Friday, October 25, 2019 | Conference begins at 9:00 AM.

The day-long event is free and open to the public but REGISTRATION is required. 

  • Keynote Lecture: Felicity D. Scott at 5:30 pm
