Re-Thinking Urban in Pakistan Workshop


Collaborative Workshop at NED University City Campus Karachi

1-2 January 2013

Organized By: Department of Architecture and Planning, NED University of Engineering & Technology, American Institute of Pakistan Studies, South Asia Institute, University of Texas – Austin and Habib University, Karachi

This workshop is envisaged as an exchange between academics and activists who primarily work on urban Sindh in Pakistan. It will encourage interdisciplinary perspectives and bring together urban planners, architects, historians, anthropologists, sociologists, artists, film makers, fiction writers and others involved in thinking about cities in Sindh in creative and novel forms. The forum will create a space to enter into a dialogue to understand the contemporary urban forms and contexts as they transform in Sindh and in a comparative perspective.  The endeavor is to bring a group of interdisciplinary expertise on the subject together to create room for dialogue and discussion across various dimensions and open up new ways to think about the cities in Sindh.
