This summer's [IN]CITY program is being led by Dr. Jason Luger, an urban geographer and city planning practitioner with a career in the public and private sectors in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. He is a lecturer in the Department of City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley who completed his PhD at King's College London. Jason's academic research explores the way urban space is produced, and the relationship between urban space, politics, and identity (especially gendered and LGBTQ identities). He is also interested in the relationship between digital space and the built environment, and the interplay between 'local' and 'global' at different scales.
The [IN]CITY program is a comprehensive six week introduction to the study and practice of urban planning through the lens of sustainability. By attending daily lectures and engaging in studio work, participants acquire the skills necessary to inform planning proposals. [IN]CITY assignments are real projects with actual clients who represent a diverse group of stakeholder organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. These organizations actively aim to influence sustainable planning policy at the local, county and regional levels.
