SCARP Speaker Series: SCARP's Heather Campbell and Julia Harten

RSVP here


In SCARP's speaker series, starting with SCARP faculty and soon new perspectives and lenses from worldwide experts in planning, we welcome students, faculty, alumni, and planners and friends near and far, to hear new perspectives, network, and ask the pertinent questions of the day. 

Each talk has new insights and best practices for equitable cities, climate resilience, community partnerships, and more; with implications across innumerable fields.

SCARP stands by a cutting-edge approach to planning, nurturing innovation, challenging conventions, and keeping pace with a rapidly-changing world and the biggest challenges we face today. We believe in knowledge in action and planning in partnership.

Heather Campbell, Professor / Director, UBC SCARP

Campbell speaks from the lens of the recent report she co-authored, "Knowledge that Matters: Realising the Potential of Co-Production", created for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and funded by the N8 Research Partnership's study to explore new models of 'co-production'. Campbell explores how universities need to change to facilitate better working between academic and non-academic communities.

Julia Harten, SCARP, Canada Research Chair

Julia Harten, Assistant Professor / Tier 2 CRC, UBC SCARP

Harten provides an overview over her various research projects centering on data innovation for housing and inclusive urbanization and housing strategies of marginalized groups. As an example of her work, Harten deep-dives into an ongoing project that explores the role of gender in the shared housing, drawing on data collected from Craigslist in Los Angeles.
