Noon Wed., March 6, Skillman’s Gendebien Room: This talk by Prof. Dean Chahim of NYU is a history of how a series of massive engineering adaptations in Mexico City, particularly to the city’s drainage system, transformed the ostensible disaster of land subsidence into a chronic and unremarkable condition of everyday life in North America’s largest metropolis. It is the third in a four-part series on Engineering & Social Justice this spring.
