On September 15th, Dr. Catalina Ortiz, Associate Professor of Development Planning at University College London, visits campus to give a talk titled "Disobedient Urban Research: Provocations for Setting a Decolonial Agenda." 

Dr. Ortiz is a Colombian urbanist and educator with a BA in Architecture and a Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning both from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Her PhD is in Urban Planning and Policy from the University of Illinois Chicago where she attended as a Fulbright scholar. She uses decolonial and critical urban theory through knowledge co-production methodologies to study the politics of space production in Latin America and Southeast Asia to foster more just cities and the recognition of multiple urban knowledges.
