We look forward to welcoming Rania Ghosn, Associate Professor of Architecture and Urbanism at MIT School of Architecture + Planning and founding partner of the practice DESIGN EARTH, to speak as part of our 2020-21 lecture series.

Prior to joining MIT, she was an Assistant Professor at University of Michigan and a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston University. Rania is founding editor of the journal New Geographies and editor-in-chief of NG2: Landscapes of Energy. Some of her recent writings have been published in GSD Platform, Journal of Architectural Education, MONU, Thresholds, Bracket, San Rocco, and Perspecta.
As a result of public health precautions put in place by the university, all lectures will be hosted virtually via Zoom.
All lectures will take place at 12 PM PDT. Registration is required to join each lecture.
