Her project is titled, “The Energy Empire Shifts East: An Analysis of Siberian Urbanization Processes,” and considers the case of Siberia as an exception to the conviction that where there are pipelines, urbanization follows. The project was started in Professor Neil Brenner’s spring 2014 course, “Extreme Territories of Urbanization.” Read the Davis Center announcement.
