MAPP Diversity & Inclusion Fall Lecture


Alito Alessi (DanceAbility International) and Frances Bronet (Illinois Institute of Technology) will discuss how physical and architectural bodies impact each other in their “Don’t Leave Me” mixed-abilities dance/architecture performance piece. The installation is only stable if the dancers manage their movement and shift their weight; the project depends on the collective musculature of the bodies and resulting architectural interaction.


“Feel the Force” Lecture


Associate Professor of Architecture Isabelle Gournay has been named ADVANCE Professor by the university’s ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence. She will serve as the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation’s (MAPP) liaison for the 2017-18 academic year. Gournay succeeds Professor Madlen Simon, who represented the school during the last academic year, continuing her efforts to both empower and advance MAPP’s women faculty within the school and the university.
