Event Description

Please join us for the second in a series of lectures held in celebration of NHPT’s 50th Anniversary as Thomas Fisher (Professor and Dean, College of Design, University of Minnesota) presents New Haven: A Once – and Future – Resilient Community.

Using material drawn from his most recent book manuscript, Fracture Critical: How We Design Our Way to Disasters, Professor Fisher will discuss how a number of unrelated catastrophic events in the last few years have resulted from “fracture-critical” design, in which products, services, systems and structures have so much interconnectedness and (misguided) efficiency that they have failed suddenly and completely. Traditional settlements, with their diverse ecosystems, buildings and infrastructures, have a remarkable ability to resist such disasters; cities like New Haven once had such resiliency and could have it again with the right actions on our part.

A wine and cheese reception, beginning at 5:30 pm, will precede the lecture.

Thomas Fisher is a Professor and Dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota. Educated at Cornell University in architecture and Case Western Reserve University in intellectual history, he previously served as the Regional Preservation Officer at the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, the Historical Architect of the Connecticut Historical Commission in Hartford, and the Editorial Director of Progressive Architecture magazine in Stamford. He has published 35 book chapters, over 250 articles in various magazines and journals and seven books over the last 11 years.

This event is free and open to the public. Please pre-register by calling NHPT at (203) 562-5919 or by emailing info@nhpt.org.

Supported by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and members of The New Haven Preservation Trust.

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
