TCAUP symposia online: ‘The Geologic Turn’ and ‘Curating Race, Curating Space’

While I’m still working on the next post (and attending the Atlas book launch!), here are the links to presentations from two interesting symposia, hosted and kindly put online by the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning (TCAUP). I witnessed the introductory lecture to the ‘Geologic Turn’ symposium (organised by Etienne Turpin), but unfortunately missed the second half as well as the ‘Curating Race, Curating Space’ event (organised by Milton S F Curry).
