Conversations around public health, architecture, and cities
Studio X 180 Varick Street New York, NY

This symposium, entitled Conversations around Public Health, Architecture, and Cities, is being co-sponsored by the Mailman School of Public Health and the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), at Columbia University. It will take place on April 22, 2014 from 8:30 – 3:45, in GSAPP’s Studio X located at 180 Varick Street. The event is informed by an appreciation of the ever-growing role of the urban environment in shaping the health of populations, both in the US and globally. Urban environments, including physical, social, and service spaces shape the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat. Emerging evidence suggests that the urban environment shapes how we feel, think, and behave. This understanding animates scholarship that must, definitionally, exist at the interstices of public health and urban planning/architecture. It is the intent of this meeting to explore these interstices. The symposium will feature talks and panel discussions addressing our understanding of cities and their role in shaping public health, how we can learn from case studies, and how we can set an agenda for building healthy cities in the future.

The Dean's Seminar Series on Incarceration: Asylums, Prisons, and the Political Economy of a Punitive Society: An American Genealogy of Morals
Rosenfield 532B

Dean Linda P. Fried and Dr. Lisa Metsch, chair of Sociomedical Sciences, are hosting a series of seminars that will apply a public health lens to the problem of incarceration in the United States. Many of the factors in people's lives that create vulnerability to imprisonment are also key public health issues: early child development; environmental, socio-economic, mental and physical health; homelessness; drug abuse; violence; and others. Our school has committed to leading innovative analysis to understand this complex web of causes in new ways and to identify more effective approaches to prevention along these pathways. This series will bring to the Mailman campus a diverse group of scholars, clinicians, criminal justice officials, and policy advocates—each of whom provides a unique perspective on incarceration as a significant social and public heath phenomenon, including its history, conceptual foundations, relationship to crime, and consequences for public health. A light lunch will be served at each of the seminars in the series. Kindly RSVP to Chelsea Davis.
