Join the Program on the Global Environment and Chicago Studies for the launch of Expositions Magazine. Expositions was founded in 2021 by University of Chicago students studying urban journalism with Dr. Evan Carver, who teaches courses that explore public space, environmental policy and participation, and sustainable urban development. In partnership with the Program on the Global Environment, Expositions aims to highlight environmental and urban scholarship through creative forms. Unlike a school newspaper or academic journal, Expositions seeks current profiles of dynamic issues and phenomena through a wide range of styles and genres, with a distinct focus on creativity and boldness in both prose and visual art. This event will be held at the Urban Lounge (1155 E. 60th Street) on January 28th from 12:00-1:30PM. Attendees are encouraged to grab a copy and celebrate the launch of Expositions Magazine, featuring live readings from the authors. Sign up here.
