Friday, April 3, 2009 - Saturday, April 4, 2009 at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design

The Ecology of Inequality is an examination of the systems, infrastructure and design processes that create or perpetuate the socio-economic and environmental stratification of our society.

Conference sessions will include a diverse pool of invited panelists, as well as intriguing submission from our Call for Papers. Presentations will evaluate the social conditions, historical precedents and design decisions that have led to today's conditions. The conference will also discuss contemporary approaches that are confronting the current power structure, or ones that are seeking to establish new, justice-oriented design strategies that replace the ecology of inequality with ecologies of equity.

Details and list of panelists and speakers available here: http://www.design.upenn.edu/unspokenborders09/schedule.htm

Organized by the PennDesign Black Student Alliance and the 2009 Unspoken Borders Planning Committee.
