Talking the City: Unpacking the Intimate Interview

IMG_1995.JPG

Who: Jessica Myers + Alexis Harrison

Affiliation: MIT

Description: Here There Be Dragons and Home are urban studies projects that depend on a particular set of interview questions. These questions are meant to draw people out about their feelings of safety and danger in the city. This workshop will be centered around the interview questions from this field research. In the session, participants will pair off and ask some of these interview questions, then come together and debrief some of these responses, unpacking what these experiences tell us about public space, urban design, social codes, and policy. Participants will also hear excerpts from Here There Be Dragons and Home and learn how Paris, New York and Watts residents responded to similar questions.
