Urban Planning & Social Equity

Sponsored by the UNCG Sustainability Council and the Office of Sustainability, the Sustainability Lecture and Dialogue Series features UNCG researchers and aims to increase our knowledge and inspire actions to build communities based on UNCG’s vision of sustainability as the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, economy, and aesthetics. We believe interconnectedness provides a foundation from which to discover, implement, and enrich sustainable principles and practices that promote and instill justice, civility, and grace in our communities. 

Dr. John G. Stehlin is an Assistant Professor in Geography, Environment, and Sustainability at UNCG. His research focuses on urban political economy, mobility and transportation infrastructure, and questions of spatial justice, and he teaches economic geography, qualitative research methods, and environmental political economy. He is the author of Cyclescapes of the Unequal City: Bicycle Infrastructure and Uneven Development (University of Minnesota Press, 2019).

Dr. Marcia Rosalie Hale is an Assistant Professor in Peace and Conflict Studies at UNCG. She is concerned with how we relate to each other, and to the land, to the water, and their other inhabitants. She seeks to understand complex systems and to guide social change toward positive peace by addressing injustice and social brutalities – essentially asking the question: How do we live together better? She is especially interested in how cities can serve as agents of global human security. Her research sits at the nexus of global environmental change, environmental justice, migration, water and agriculture.
