The Detroit School Lecture Series draws notable scholars from around the country to discuss their research on Detroit and other declining cities. What results is an interdisciplinary conversation on how research on these cities lead us to rethink urbanity and re-orient or adapt classic urban theories, using the unique insights made visible by decline and depopulation.
