Harvard GSD, Fall 2014. Designed and taught the first core course for the 'Risk and Resilience' concentration at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. This Proseminar provided students with an introduction to discourses and case studies of risk and resilience that intersect with key issues in built environment planning and design. I defined 'risk' as conditions of vulnerability that arise from events - such as natural disasters and conflicts - and from structural, historical processes such as sociopolitical marginalization and climate change. In turn, 'resilience' emphasized built environment strategies that community, international, and state actors deploy to mitigate and limit vulnerabilities. I consider risk and resilience to be dialectically linked as a set of problematics and responses, over time, in space, and activated by particular actors. The course represents my cross-disciplinary, theory-practice approach to teaching.
