The Foundation for Contemporary Art (FCA) in Ghana is housed in a modern, modest wooden building at the W.E.B. Dubois center in the Cantonments, Accra. After rebuilding in 2015 because of flooding and a fallen tree on the building, the organization founded in 2004 by Professor Joe Nkrumah and Australian anthropologist Virginia Ryan made a vibrant comeback. The FCA offers its space to artists of all varieties for exhibitions, workshops, book talks, educational presentations, Critlabs, and networking that center development, presentation, and critical thinking of contemporary art in Ghana. Their space is also complete with an extensive library that is open to the public with books on African and world art, history, architecture, and culture. The FCA not only works on projects in their space, but they also bring art out into the community through building play spaces, murals, sculptures, and renovations that clean up run-down public areas.

At the FCA, public art that fosters community engagement has taken a primary focus with co-directors Adwoa Amoah and Ato Annan facilitating multiple projects around the city. Amoah received her BFA in painting from the Kwame Nkrumah University of science and technology in Kumasi, Ghana. She has collaborated with artists and organizations locally and internationally to curate, manage, and facilitate educational art projects that include, The Global Crit Clinic Ghana in 2012, 2013, and 2014, The Archive: Static, Embodied, Practiced in 2013 and 2017, and Curatorial Intensive, Accra, Ghana in 2017 (Critlab, 2022). Annan is also an artist specializing in painting, installation, sound, video, and performance and his work has been exhibited in Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Holland, Denmark, Italy, and India. He has collaborated and facilitated projects on local and international levels such as three years of The Global Crit Clinic and the smaARTpower Laboratory workshop in  2012 in Accra (Curators International, 2022). Both Amoah and Annan have an interest in public art and believe in its potential to foster community engagement and enrichment as well as “democratize” or widen the audience of contemporary art (Curators International, 2022). Together they have worked on projects in Accra that include the Chale Wote Street Art Festival from 2011-2016, the Mmofra Park project in 2014, and the Longitudinal Diologues Project in May of 2022. 

The Chale Wote is Ga language and translates to “friend lets go” in English and takes place in James Town, Accra. The festival attracts over 200 artists from Ghana and around the world every year and aspires to break creative barriers with art as a tool to renovate public spaces (Visit Ghana, 2022). During Chale Wote, the streets come alive with musical performances, street painting, graffiti murals, theatre, poetry, skating, food and fashion vendors, and workshops in which the FCA is the visual coordinator during the event (Visit Ghana, 2022).

Mmofra Place was a 2014 project collaboration between the Mmofra Foundation and the FCA with the goal of building a children’s park in Dzorwulu, Accra. Mmofra translates to children in Akan language and the space was brilliantly crafted into a playground, garden plot, and natural greenery space for relaxation and community gathering. Mmofra is an inspiration for more initiatives around Accra focused on public art spaces for children to play to connect to Ghanaian culture and nature. 

The Longitudinal Diologues was a collaboration between the FCA, The Line London, Arup Phase 2, and renowned Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey in May of 2022 that was funded by The British Council’s International Collaboration Grant. The project put on workshops on teaching and discussing urgent topics including migration, climate change, and water supply in six primary schools in London and six primary schools in Accra. Pupils then crafted wearable artworks reusing everyday recyclable materials that were inspired by Clottey’s art project, Afrogallonism (FCA, 2022).

Through their creative brilliance and dedication, the FCA has established itself as a powerful, influential force in Ghana, West Africa, and the world that brings the critical reflection of contemporary art to African society. With the reopening of the city after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the FCA is driving forward in 2022 with more public art installations and projects to look ahead to. Amoah and Annan are in the beginning stages of planning an art walk in Accra inspired by The Line London, which is set to open in 2023 or 2024. The central vision of the project is to invite local and international artists to collaborate with Ghanaians to build artworks in public spaces that are reflective of their cultural heritage and present realities. The Art Walk will be strategically mapped out around Accra in different neighborhoods and also highlight other local attractions in the area.

This is a reflection from OTH editor and The Third Chapter Project, Inc President, Lee Walton from a recent trip in South Africa. Learn more about The Third Project, Inc. and connect with Lee at www.thirdchapter.org.


On a recent study abroad New York University students visited the township of Lange on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. Our guide Zameli Hleli claims that the name Langa comes from the Xhosa word for “sun-shine”, but it can also be traced back to an abbreviated form of the name Langalibalele, who was a 19th-century Bantu king of the AmaHlubi, in what is modern-day KwaZulu-Natal. Langa is one of the oldest townships in South Africa, tracing back to 1919, before apartheid but still founded with the intent to segregate black Africans.

Today, South Africa has the second highest wealth gap of all countries in the world and over 38.6% unemployment for Black South Africans. In response, the township of Langa is using art to create a stronger sense of community and to support the local economy by teaching young and old alike how to become self-sufficient through the arts.  Guga S’thebe Arts and Cultural Center in Langa is the focal point not just for fine art but for performance art as well. On any given day, one can walk in and hear jazz or a drumming circle, watch a live performance, learn about mosaics, wood carving, painting, or sculpture or just talk to the local artists about their craft. 

As humanists, we appreciate the preservation of culture through art. The sense of pride and community fostered within the Langa art community “shines” through. If anyone would like further information about this wonderful project, please reach out to us at OTH.

Via College Art Association

For the OTH Art Issue, we want to be thoughtful sharing ideas, inspiration, and new ways of thinking from peoples underrepresented in art history scholarship and conversations in public or civic spaces around art in public life. Specifically with our readership being primarily in academic libraries and faculty departments, providing access to new resources and thought leadership is a core purpose of this Art Issue. 

The College Art Association is on the forefront of many of these topics and conversations as an international leadership organization consistently engaging with artists, scholars, and policy makers. The introduction and syllabus (linked) below is from “A Syllabus on Transgender and Nonbinary Methods for Art and Art History” (Art Open Journal, CAA, 2021), and provides a strong framework for future discussions, lessons, or personal research Transgender and Nonbinary Methods for Art and Art History. 

From Art Journal 80, no. 4 (Winter 2021)

The following syllabus is intended to introduce central topics and methods from transgender studies to art history. It proposes some ways that art and art history’s key themes might be reimagined.

Art history has been slow to engage the robust and decades-old interdisciplinary field of transgender studies. In comparison to fields such as literature or film studies, there has been a dearth of engagement. At the time we submitted this syllabus (March 2021), the term “transgender” had appeared in Art Journal in only thirty-six articles or reviews (with three instances of “nonbinary” and five of “transsexual,” in comparison to 135 of “queer”). The Art Bulletin had three occurrences of “transgender”—with a decade between each occurrence. (“Transsexual” and “nonbinary” have each appeared once in that publication.) The reluctance of art history to engage with trans and nonbinary histories and topics is not for a lack of artists. Contemporary artists have been making work that gives form to the politics and emotions of transgender, nonbinary, and intersex experience in exciting ways. They are on the forefront of trans visibility, and their work has more often been discussed in other fields such as performance studies, film studies, and Black studies.

This syllabus seeks to address this disciplinary caesura by offering a set of short, thematic bibliographies as a means to prompt new alliances between transgender studies and art history. The syllabus does not rehearse the foundations or historiography of transgender studies; consequently, we have forgone many important and now-classic texts that a more comprehensive introduction to the field and its ongoing development would entail. Instead, we organized the syllabus according to general themes that we thought would be useful to teachers and researchers of art and art history. It offers one possible entry into transgender studies, with a concentration on recent texts. Our idea was to take terms that circulate in conversations about art (“form,” “materiality,” and so on) and demonstrate how transgender and nonbinary positions compel us to look at those terms differently. Rather than focus on individual artists, we tried to find texts that spoke with each other about these broad themes. While there are occasional texts in the syllabus that address a single artist’s practice, we have weighted the selection in favor of the methods and concepts around which each thematic section is organized. We developed the order of the texts in each bibliography organically through our discussions and editing, and they are listed in our suggested reading sequence. (We also encourage readers to freely reorganize our lists as well as the sections themselves.)

The selections in the syllabus represent many positions within the interdisciplinary field of transgender studies. We follow the current understanding of that field as encompassing not just the study of transgender subjects but also descriptive and analytic modes of accounting for and nourishing the complexities and multiplicities of nonascribed genders—in conjunction with a critique of the systemic suppression and erasure of them. Transgender studies demands (and is constituted through) a deep engagement with the critical analysis of race, sexuality, ability, and class. It also requires a trenchant account of political and economic ideologies and institutions that parse life and death—namely, the prison industrial complex, racial capitalism, anti-immigration covenants, medical research, building and planning codes, educational standards, and legislative prohibitions on the use of one’s own body.

To suit the readership of Art Journal, the historical focus of the topics lies heavily in contemporary art and recent debates. Even within that chronological frame, we found it necessary to choose only a few foci from among the many pathways, media, and practices of contemporary art. Film and new media, for instance, are represented by only a small selection of texts, since their connections with fields other than art history have resulted in more robust engagements with transgender studies and require their own distinct bibliographies. As well, with a handful of key exceptions (notably, in the Museums and Curating section), most of the texts center on cultural production in the United States (and are written in English). This was a difficult choice to make, since we recognize that this is only one dimension of a global framework for transgender and nonbinary topics. However, the Black, anti- and decolonial, and Indigenous analytics and methods outlined by the scholars and artists whom we have marshalled here address the triangulation of racialization, coloniality, and (un)gendering. These methods are part of diasporic and transnational enterprises, historicity, and discourse. The art and scholarship included in the syllabus show how the conjuncture of Black, Indigenous, and trans analytics problematize settler colonialism, sovereignty, and nationalism and border enforcement.

At present, there are also burgeoning fields arguing for the distinctness of nonbinary and intersex experience—which are only sometimes or partially registered in the history of trans studies. In the present syllabus, we have also aimed to include readings that formulate a nonbinary mode of analysis and history, seeing it as allied with the broader aim of trans studies to make space for a critical assessment of nonascribed genders. There are fewer texts drawn from intersex studies in the syllabus. Intersex studies has a more defined and longrunning literature (that has helped to shape transgender studies). Some of the key questions about the regulation of bodies and their capacities look different from the perspectives of intersex studies and trans studies, even though they share much in terms of their broad critique and methods. Our inclusions of texts from intersex studies focus on issues of photography and representation. As intersex studies has decisively shown (especially with regard to the history of medicine, psychiatry, and criminology in the United States), the scientific narratives about gender and sex were constituted through the violent study of intersex bodies and the problem of representation they posed to scientific and psychiatric establishments.1 Photography was a central tool of that violence—a fact that all histories of photography must address. The historical and methodological issues that intersex studies offer to art history are many; we see the need for another project such as this one that would examine the central place of intersex in histories of representation.

We are very aware of how partial this (or any) syllabus is, but the advantage of the syllabus form is that its content must constantly be adapted, changed, substituted, and updated. We encourage the selective use and remaking of the topics, and we expect that readers will have many additions to our themes and the texts we chose to represent them. We included multiple texts for each thematic section, with the understanding that instructors might use only a selection of those texts or use the groupings as the basis for multiple sessions on a given theme. We have included our own writings in the syllabus as a means of locating some of our investments in these topics. With regard to the illustrations: they relate to artists featured in some of the texts, and they were chosen to suggest additional dimensions beyond the examples discussed. In the interest of increasing the audience for this syllabus, it will also appear online with open access on Art Journal Open. Whenever possible, links to texts are provided in the syllabus. We thank the Art Journal editors for their help with this process.

In the time that we have been developing this list, the literature on transgender, nonbinary, and intersex cultural production has grown rapidly, with exciting new contributions being published every month.2 We have tried to give significant representation to the most recent literature. One could easily teach a class on the scholarship that has been published in the last two years alone. We see this syllabus as an opening to a dynamic and evolving field that is made possible through the nexus of trans and nonbinary art, pedagogy, and methodology.

By the end of the first term of the new mayor, 62,810 city-backed affordable housing units will face expiring-use (expiration of their affordability) in New York City. Now is the time for New York City to adopt a steadfast approach to affordable housing. This crisis requires public policy that removes housing from the speculative market and expands its supply. The NYC Social Housing Development Authority: A People-First Housing Engine for New York City is a detailed report that recommends municipality backed social housing. A Social Housing Development Authority in NYC,  if established by city and state, can both move real-estate away from the private market and reserve them for community control. It is a people-first strategy that acknowledges housing as a right, not a commodity.

The NYC Social Housing Development Authority: A People-First Housing Engine for New York City was co-authored by the Urban Democracy Lab, a university-based initiative that believes universities can play a critical civic role in promoting social justice scholarship, curricular innovation, public engagement, and programming. We are inspired by the idea of a social lab, and promote experimentation and collaboration, to identify systemic solutions. Municipal social housing is not a novel concept; international communities have used this strategy and seen varying levels of success. SHDA combines global examples (like social housing in Vienna, Austria) with locally held mechanisms such as TOPA and the Housing our Neighbors with Dignity Act, to propose a model adapted for the City. Critical to the work in this report are our incredible organizers at Housing Justice For All. Housing Justice For All is a statewide movement of tenants and homeless New Yorkers who fight for tenant and homeless centered policy changes at the local, state and federal level.

Introduction

While researching cityLAB for the OTH Urban Humanities Issue, there were so many projects, people, and concepts that caught my eye that I feel I could discuss with the director, Dana Cuff, for longer than thirty minutes. We kept it pretty high level, as she offered perspective on cityLAB’s evolution in the past ten years and the parallels in their work and the field with the public view of the urban humanities. Thank you to Dr. Cuff for taking time to chat and connect over shared interests and cityLAB’s exciting work.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity. 


Chris 

Introduce yourself and cityLAB.

Dana 

Okay. So my name is Dana Cuff. I have a PhD in architecture, which is a humanities degree, because it’s primarily about architectural history, though the way I did my degree was also an anthropological kind of focus, and I have been teaching for 25 years at University of California, Los Angeles. And 16 years ago, I started cityLAB there, which was really a kind of design research center intended to bring architects, actually, to critical issues. Katrina had happened not long before that, speaking of New Orleans —

Chris 

–very familiar.*

*Chris is from South Louisiana and brought this up before the interview started.

Dana 

And we had no way of responding, so it seemed like we needed new formats. So cityLAB emerged out of that. We really took a proactive stance towards critical issues, not Katrina, but issues around Los Angeles, Southern California, and beyond. And then in 2012, I, along with my colleagues, got a big grant, a very generous grant from the Mellon Foundation to launch the Urban Humanities, which was really this experiment in integrative humanities between myself, a professor in planning, Anastasia Lukaitu-Saderas, and two humanities professors, Todd Presner, who works in digital humanities and is also a Germanic scholar and happen to pick up an extra PhD in art history while he was at it, literally just got two. And Maite Zubiaurre, who is a professor of Spanish and Portuguese languages and a translator and writes a really wide array of studies…she’s now working on films about border deaths in the Southwest. So it’s a really great, amazing group of core faculty, and it’s led by, most importantly, the day-to-day operations and management of it is now led by Dr. Gustavo Leclerc, who has his PhD in architecture from UCLA. He was one of my former students, but he’s a senior scholar in Latinx urbanism, so he’s been a terrific addition to the team.

Chris 

So since 2012 and the grant from the Mellon Foundation, there’s definitely been a lot of different movement—scholarship, public understanding, etc., around the urban humanities, defining what that is both in practice and in the classroom. So, ten years later…how has that definition changed for you. 

Well, it’s interesting. I think the definition we gave it at the start still holds for me. It’s just way more meaningful and robust than it used to be. So we defined it, and probably the book we wrote together* would be a better source than my memory, but we define it as the integrative study among architecture, planning and the humanities into the past histories of cities, the contemporary interpretation of everyday life in cities. And this is really what distinguishes what I think is most important about urban humanities—projections about possible futures based on those first two analyses. And to me, it’s that idea of opening possible futures based on historic and contemporary analyses that distinguishes urban humanities from other humanities, where that kind of projective or generative role is less clearly a component. And essentially that turns it into an ethical practice, which is also something that the university has really only explicitly dealt with in philosophy in the past. And at the same time, I would say there’s a tacit ethical dimension in every department in the university. So we try to flesh that out and really think through what that might mean for urban activism from a scholarly engagement perspective.

*Urban Humanities New Practices for Reimagining the City (MIT Press 2020)

Chris

That’s a really good segue—speaking about possible future—into what why “Education Workforce Housing in California: Developing the 21st Century Campus” caught my attention on cityLAB’s recent publication list. Having previously worked in a freelance contract for a graduate program with the ultimate goal of improved primary school teacher retention rates, to see a more wholistic and dynamic approach to educators and the space in policy and in our cities we carve out was impressive.

Dana 

Thinking about cityLAB and Urban Humanities, they’re kind of braided together, dovetailed. But cityLAB is kind of the design/research arm which we fund. We initiate projects and we fund from whatever we can call together, frankly. Humanities is our curricular piece, and it evolved later because we realized that we should be training a new generation of people who have those kind of convictions. Like you’re talking about—how could we make the world we want to live in and why can’t we bring our scholarship to that? So if scholarship, particularly in fields like anthropology but also in architecture and in planning—have been an extractive practice, meaning we go in, we learn about you, and then we go back and we do whatever we want with that knowledge. We wanted to make it an engaged practice where it was clear we were partners in that knowledge production.

So education, workforce housing, came out of cityLAB, but it’s really completely colored by everything that has happened in urban humanities. We basically realized there was land that–a lot of land in California, at least. It’s an interesting history. Again, looking at the history made us understand why this was available and what would be some of the boundaries for it.

When they were laying out the township and section system of Jeffersonian Land Management, two sections were given over to public schools in every township. Crazy. So they had all this land and in the early years of this, so that’s in the late 18th century, in the early years, they sold off portions to fund different things and basically they gave away the family jewels in a way.

And it wasn’t always clear that it had a long-lasting impact on education. Still, there’s a lot of land left, but we now have to be more cautious that whatever we’re taking it for is going to benefit the future of the students who are getting educated there or the teachers.

Chris

Well, and that’s something I imagine in teaching over the past 16-18 years, that hopefully the students that you’re encountering today are a little more acutely aware of. There’s less of that land, for example (chuckling). And so the decisions that we make going forward with it now have to be a little more thoughtful. And they do have to be engaged from a pedagogical level about these issues at an early level and how they can implement them after school.

We have a broad humanities audience for this newsletter. A lot of these conversations are often just about the tangible value of the work that people in humanities spaces produce. And it seems like you guys, by pairing those to both the design and lab aspect of it with the pedagogical, answer some of those concerns.

Dana

Absolutely. Think about the historical evolution of school land, just taking the same example, and then spending two full years trying to figure out what actually happens if someone—it was legal to build on school land before our current legislative bill, but nobody could get it done. And once you started studying that, that’s the sort of contemporary analysisyou understand that the people who know most about this—say administrators, communities who were blocking it, teachers who didn’t want to live in what was nearby, blah, blah, all these people who were stakeholders could teach us what it would mean to open that possibility for future generations of teachers and Californians. So this is the second time in my career I’ve successfully converted research into policy. And we’re nearly at the end of California state policy enabling and entitling the ability to build housing, affordable housing, 50% affordable on school property.

Yeah, it’d be amazing. Our calculation is if it was maxed out–we did a GIS analysis of all the school property in the entire state with our partners from UC Berkeley, and there’s 150,000 acres of school and, and half of that is potentially developable, meaning it isn’t having current uses on it. It is available to people for housing, blah, blah, blah. You could build 2.3 million units of housing at three stories or less, which is what the bill would allow. So it would solve California’s housing problem–like that. That’s not going to happen. But if 10% of that were built, it would be a huge difference.

Chris

Well, and I think that’s somethingit must be hard. I’m not an architect, but being around architects all the time, balancing the aspirational with the practical, but also with the policy making, knowing you could fix all of it like that pretty quick. But even 10% at least is a step in the right direction, right?

Dana

Yeah. And, you know, what we think of is that we basically make architecture possible in new situations. That cityLAB’s job is never to do the architecture, but to make it possible for architects to do new kinds of work. So that’s what this policy would do. And your firm would be the kind of firm that might be interested in this, because there should be a lot more districts and nonprofit builders trying to do that.

Urban humanities does not get to that policy level. That’s really a kind of much more in the weeds, deep dive research project. But the people that we hire at cityLAB are always urban humanities graduates because they’re the ones who understand the full spectrum of concerns and issues. And our most successful graduates from urban humanities really are–well, one form of successful graduate are the 50 or so PhDs who went through the program, who got jobs based on, in part, their urban humanities graduate certificates and experiences, which really distinguishes them from other candidates, from art history or literature or education.

Chris 

Well, I think that analytical and engagement pairing serves really well as far as being able to apply—whether they stay in something related to the urban humanities or test waters outside. I think that’s something unique in urban humanities field, which is an ever-evolving discipline.

Dana

But an engagement is key, so you’re raising that again is really fundamental. There’s a part of me that wonders if the students interested in engagement aren’t the ones who come to us automatically. And so they’re just much more dynamic in terms of their thinking about the potential social justice impacts of their scholarship. But urban humanities, the program that we run, puts a very fine point on that and gives them direct experience about how to think through social and spatial justice in terms of humanities kind of contexts. 

Chris

That interplay in the urban humanities with the work and research that you guys do between the spatial justice and environmental justice, and then at the end, the policy making, there must be an activism part somewhere in there too.

Dana

Really, I don’t separate activism out of it. I think scholars engaged in social justice questions have to be recognized. They are also activists and grapple with that. It’s interesting, you know–I just had this happen again in the spring with some of my students, You know, historians and other scholars are rightly uncomfortable in community engaged projects where they don’t affiliate in some way, a kind of membership there. So what we were investigating this spring was the anti-Chinese massacre in Los Angeles. 18 men were hung in 1871 in a race riot, basically. Not exactly part of Los Angeles’ well-known history. And there’s a real reckoning and reparations that has to happen, and history and solid historical scholarship is fundamental to the new sort of regimes or paradigms of reparation. So I had two classes going. The one that was in urban humanities was around black displacement along the California coastlines, southern California. Two of us, three of us, actually, worked on that with students and trying to unearth the historical records–

Chris

Yeah, talk about hard research…

Dana 

Yeah, very hard. I mean, it’s really a rigorous historical past, and it’s absolutely activism, and it matters. And trying to get students to—or, connecting with those students who want to do work that matters in some way, that has an impact, is what urban humanities is able to do. And it surely isn’t all the university students. Humanities is kind of a luxurious enterprise, in some ways. We read archives. We read books —

Chris

Can be a tad esoteric for some. 

Dan

Exactly. And I am all for that being supported by the university. I think it’s wonderful that there’s still room for someone to sit in the basement with a bunch of old Roman coins and go through them. It’s wonderful. It really is a luxury. But that’s not everybody’s cup of tea. And we haven’t really allowed for other alternatives in the humanities as legitimate scholarship. And I think that’s one of the struggles that urban humanities–and I put urban humanities and public humanities together, though our focus on cities and space is more explicit. But there’s also other kinds of integrative humanities, like medical humanities–I think that those are all providing new ways for humanists to connect with impactful ideas about their research.

Chris

Definitely. I think what stands out to me is that comparison of the scholar in the basement going through the coins compared to kind of what some of the urban humanities has to offer. I cringe at it a little bit at first because I was an English major, I was a specifically an English literature and political science major. But then you come to realize that, at least for me, the stuff that I learned coming up in those schools was stuff that informs how I see my environment. And what the urban humanities are working towards is always kind of environmental. So it’s always a little bit bigger than the person poring through the old book or the old coin collection. And that’s what it feels to me, and that’s why it’s interesting to me. And that’s what makes it harder for, I think, me and a lot of people to sometimes grasp where does it start, where does it end? And that’s not always the right question to ask. I think it’s, you know, the activities that get you there.

Dana

It’s interesting you say that, where it starts and where it ends. The way that resonates with me and my experience in teaching graduate students. We’ve had now, ten years, 250 students moved through our urban humanities program. And the vast majority of them, I think 210 of those, have gotten their graduate certificate in urban humanities. Big numbers now. And over the years, I’ve seen various kinds of intellectual or ethical stumbles that we make or our students make, but together we discover them. And one of them is that you can’t do trans-disciplinary work, work that spans disciplines as well, before you know what your own discipline’s boundaries are, So, people say,

“Oh, if you mix disciplines, you get a camel instead of a horse or something like that.”

I mean, I don’t really believe that. I think that’s a ridiculous adage. But what has seemed true to me is that when you come to graduate school, especially, and you’re getting a PhD in some field, everyone comes with a kind of imposter syndrome, like how’d I get in–or all the decent people do. And as they go through that, one way of answering that question is–what is my discipline and how do I fit within it?

So they’re searching for the boundaries–so we can’t immediately go in and poke holes in that to say, Oh, look, here’s where we can leak out. This is where we can make a connection. Here’s where art history and planning might intersect in public arts or social practice arts. They’re just too busy trying to make sure they know where art history lives. And I really think that’s an important step in an individual’s understanding of their capacities to respect. So at the beginning, I was always talking about trans-disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity and realized that really the first step is to discuss and acknowledge disciplinarity and the value that has.

So then you find what you’re able to—what porous parts of the boundary might make sense for you and your work.

Chris

Yes. Now that totally makes sense. You should know your own space first before you venture off too far I guess (chuckles).

Dana

Yeah. And that is something you learn all your life, but especially when you’re starting as an academic or an advanced graduate student–that’s a plague, almost seems to be a plague in an important rite of passage.

Chris 

Any last projects, news, or upcoming cityLAB happenings you want to plug?

Dana 

Sure. I’ll plug this. There are many things about cityLAB I’d like to plug, but one of the things we’ve done, particularly because of our work in urban humanities at City Lab, is to launch a second satellite cityLAB in the city, not on campus. So we call it cityLAB Westlake or CoLAB. I’m sitting in City Lab Westlake. Now, we formed deep partnerships with three or four community organizations here so that instead of each year engaging with, say, the history of Black Santa Monica and its advocates, we have here really long-term partners who are working, say with Latinx immigration issues, especially in the neighborhood we are.

Chris

Yeah. They’re integrated outside of your scope. They’re already existing there.

Dana

Yeah, that’s right. And really, they’re the experts here, and we’re their guests, and if we do well, become their partners. So that’s this new model of engaged scholarship that’s really taking partnerships and collaboration much more seriously and kind of living where we work. People here are super generous and don’t mind us always lurking around, but we then develop projects with them. We develop research proposals. We have one right now called Reflections, which is telling immigrant histories and the histories of this neighborhood, which is almost entirely Latinx but has waves of different national immigrant histories at the local public library. So we’re working with the library, with Ola which is a Heart of Los Angeles youth education group and our kind of historical background. And together we’re going to make this public project where this urban humanities gets integrated into the neighborhood through the public library.

Chris 

Nice. That’s really cool.

Dana

Yeah, the public library is being central to taking a kind of neutral and politically ethical stand in neighborhoods in general.

Covid-19 perpetuated a worldwide pause in which problems of the city unit such as spatial justice, urban planning and living, food production, and city architecture became more salient and were critically analyzed. The realities of climate change also became clear as the cessation of global travel and social-economic activities improved air quality and decreased water pollution (Rume & Islam, 2020). As the world begins to reopen, humans have the opportunity to use the insight gained from the societal closures to reimagine new cityscapes and develop environmentally-conscious living practices. OTH has gathered relevant recent episodes of podcasts discussing topics in the Urban humanities, a field that has been addressing these problems since long before the pandemic and offers innovative ideas, practices, and solutions to living sustainably and rebuilding more equitable cities.
