Garth Myers Delivers Inaugural Raether Lecture on African Urbanism 3/8/2012
In his inaugural lecture as Paul E. Raether Distinguished Professor of Urban International Studies at Trinity College, Professor Garth Myers explored the ways U.S. cities such as Hartford can learn from African cities. In the lecture titled “Can Divided Cities Become Inclusive Cities?” Myers examined how divided cities in Africa are moving toward becoming inclusive cities by focusing on two key African analysts of Africa’s divided urbanism.

Myers earned a Ph.D. in geography from the University of California, Los Angeles, with an allied field in urban planning, and an M.A from UCLA in African Area Studies. Over the past 20 years, Myers has conducted research in Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, South Africa, Finland, and the United Kingdom.
