Assistant professor Charles Davis II discusses Race-ing Architectural History at The Canadian Centre for Architecture as part of the weeklong workshop and seminar series Toolkit for Today: Activisms.

The series interrogated the different forms that engaged practice can take for scholars of architecture. But what counts as activism? How can architectural research be mobilized in the service of society?

Researchers discussed, through their work, these questions and others about the social production of space, decolonized pedagogy, redensified housing, gender parity, and racial politics in architecture.

The Canadian Centre for Architecture is an international research institution with the specific aim of increasing public awareness of the role of architecture in contemporary society and promoting research in the field.
