The reading group will be meeting at 6 PM on Wednesday, July 31, in our regular and accustomed place (Hovland 104, OSU campus). Once again, if for some reason we can’t gain entrance, after we gather, we’ll walk a short distance together to another meeting spot on campus.
Here’s are two PDFs for our next readings, “Cultural Geography and Place-Based Problem Solving,” and “The Enabling City: Place-Based Creative Probelm-Solving and the Power of the Everyday.” Here’ a suggestion to read the first one (“Cultural Geography”) if you can only read one. The second reading (“Enabling Cities”) provides a wealth concrete proposals and examples, and would be interesting to read in conjunction with the first, if you have time.
We shared some organizing stories last time we met, and hopefully these readings give us yet another interesting perspective from which to think about how to change the world, one place at a time. If for some reason you can’t open the PDF, google the titles of the articles, and they will take you to the download pages.
We use the readings as a springboard for wide-ranging discussion. If you have never joined us on a Wednesday evening, but think this set of readings might draw you, don’t hesitate! Everyone is welcome.
If you are traveling by car, there is free parking directly behind Hovland. http://oregonstate.edu/campusmap/?zoom=16&type=normal¢erlat=44.5664405984039¢erlng=-123.28127861022949&layers=1%2C&locations=820
