The Urban Studies Collective, supported by the College of Arts and Letters, welcomes art historian Dr. Christina Crawford of Emory University and the architects from the Duvall/Decker firm in Jackson, Miss. to join faculty for a discussion of urban studies and design. There will be pre-circulated papers available to read in advance of the morning roundtable discussion with faculty and guests. In the afternoon, Crawford and Duvall/Decker will give presentations on their work in the fields of urban studies and architecture. We welcome all interested students, faculty and members of the community to join us.
 
The architects from Duvall/Decker are passionate about urban revitalization projects and Mississippi-based. Those with interest in boosting Hattiesburg's downtown and midtown areas should attend and learn more about their efforts in Jackson.
