Urban Philly Professional Network (“UPPN”) & Black Voters Matter (#BlackVotersMatter)

presents...


A Conversation on City Makers: History of Black Life & Politics in Philadelphia


Thursday, September 3, 2015

Girard College, Founders Hall

2101 S. College Ave

Philadelphia, PA

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


The Urban Philly Professional Network and Black Voters Matter invites you to engage in a thought provoking Conversation on the “History of Black Life & Politics in Philadelphia” led by Dr. Marcus Anthony Hunter.

Having received his PhD in 2011 from Northwestern University in sociology, Dr. Hunter is presently faculty in the department of African American Studies at UCLA. Professor Hunter was formerly faculty at Yale University where he was a sociology professor and received the prestigious Poorvu Family Fund Award for teaching excellence. His first book, Black Citymakers: How the Philadelphia Negro Changed Urban America revisits the Black Seventh Ward neighborhood immortalized in W.E.B. DuBois’s The Philadelphia Negro, following the transformation of the neighborhood from predominantly black at the beginning of the 20th century into a largely white upper middle class and commercial neighborhood by the century’s conclusion. As the book shows, black Americans framed their own understandings of urban social change, forging dynamic inter- and intraracial alliances that allowed them to shape their own migration from the old Black Seventh Ward to emergent black urban enclaves throughout Philadelphia.

A Conversation on the “History of Black Life & Politics in Philadelphia” will engage event attendees in a variety of topics including but not limited to: Philadelphia ward politics, transitioning power, the unwritten rules of Philadelphia politics, the importance of the Black Political Forum in the history of Philadelphia, inspiring voter turnout and possible causes for voter apathy, the struggle around core issues (such as housing, jobs, education and criminal justice) and the intersection of political and economic power.

This event promises to be empowering, educational and inspirational. There is limited capacity for this must attend event.

Forgotten Chestnut Street

September 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$12 Hidden City members

$18 nonmembers

Now’s the time! Sleepy ‘ol Chestnut Street east of Broad is on the upswing again after decades of decline. The tattered remnants of past eras are getting torn down or rebuilt. Things are changing fast, but as you’ll see from this tour, that’s always been the case.

Join GroJLart for an exploration of the past, present, and future of one of Philadelphia’s most dynamic and important corridors. The tour begins at 9th and Chestnut and runs all the way to Broad Street. This may sound like an awfully short tour, but trust us–those blocks are packed with fascinating history, architectural and otherwise, and GroJLart will tell you the story each building, parking lot and parking garage along the way (with a couple of short detours).

In case you’ve never heard of Philly’s most famous man of mystery, GroJLart is the author of The Shadow Knows column in the Hidden City Daily, whose foul-mouthed Philaphilia blog does something we didn’t think was possible–it makes architecture…hilarious!

Founded in the fall of 2009, PennApps was the nation's first student-run college hackathon. Since then, it has spurred a revolution in the way engineering students develop and showcase their skills, spawning an entire "league" of hackathons across the nation. In past years, over a thousand students from the U.S. and other countries like Switzerland, Canada, England, and Singapore have converged in Philadelphia for the spring and fall editions of the event for a weekend of creation and discovery. Both beginners and experts alike will work together, learn and compete to become better engineers and work on awesome projects. This year, PennApps is growing to 2000 of the brightest hackers in the world, allowing us to bring even more of the world's best talent under one roof to work together and build amazing things.

The PennApps XII Expo (10 AM - 1 PM) will be a showcase of all the student hacks on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center. You will get the opportunity to watch the incredible innovations first-hand. The PennApps XII Closing Ceremony (2 PM - 4 PM) will be include demos from the Top 10 hacks and the announcement of all the winners. This will be livestreamed as well.

Fall Lecture Series: B.D. Wortham-Galvin

Tuesday, Sep. 8, 2015, 06:00pm

Meyerson Hall

"The Woof and Warp of Sustainability"


B.D. Wortham-Galvin

Assistant Professor, Portland State University

Adaptive reuse is not merely about stewarding changes in the physical fabrics of extant structures, but more broadly (and significantly) it involves the politics of who makes places and who gets to occupy them. This talk proposes that design, development and preservation could benefit from rethinking what might be adaptively reused, as well as how, by whom and for whom. Because adaptive reuse is rarely discussed relative to its ability to extend narratives of power and control, this talk will describe the investigations of two architecture thesis students in order to raise questions about the role of culture in sustainable design and preservation practices.

B.D. Wortham-Galvin, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture and a Faculty Fellow for both the Center for Public Interest Design and Institute for Sustainable Solutions at Portland State University. Her work focuses on those people and places left out of conventional design and development decisions in the stewardship of the built environment. She has been published in journals such as: Footprint, Architecture and Culture, Places, JAE, Powerlines, GAM, and fishwrap.  She is also the lead editor of the forthcoming book series, Sustainable Solutions (Greenleaf 2016). The Daily Journal of Commerce named her one of Oregon's Women of Vision for 2015. Wortham-Galvin holds degrees in American Civilization, Anthropology, Historic Preservation, and Architecture from Brown University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Maryland, and MIT.

Advanced Diaphragm Analysis: A Technical Presentation of Complex Diaphragms

The structural configurations of many modern buildings require complex lateral load paths that incorporate diaphragms at different elevations, multiple re-entrant corners, multiple irregularities and fewer vertical lateral force-resisting elements. It’s important to address these design issues and irregularities to ensure complete load paths throughout the structure. This workshop provides discussions on how to analyze offset diaphragms, in-plane and out-of-plane offset shear walls, and diaphragms with large openings. Code sections and irregularities associated with these types of lateral-resisting elements will also be discussed
