Statistical Stew 2 M. Miller Since they're using a small geography--block groups--spatial autocorrelation may also be an issue. Local Indicators of Spatial Autocorrelation (LISA) at the level of each city, then all together could be helpful. Also, since block groups are often separated by street centerlines, transit trip characteristics may get inappropriately split between block groups, muddling effects. Geographically weighted regression may help address autocorrelation, but has several requirements. Anselin, L. (1995). Local Indicators of Spatial Association-LISA.

Transit Ridership, Direct Demand 0 M. Miller Greetings.  Does anyone know of a recent literature review on transit ridership modeling at the stop/station scale? Sometimes called 'sketch modeling', 'direct demand modeling' or 'direct ridership modeling'? Specifically, I want to know of any reviews (or review like things) other than TCRP 16/H1, Lane et al 2006, and Upchurch and Kuby 2014. -Matt.

ACSP17 sessions on 'serious games for collaborative planning and stake...' 1 T. Schenk People do love to draw on maps. The question would be if that represents serious public engagement, or just placation. Which, offhand, is determined not just by how much public contributions are included, but how those contributions are acknowledged.

Soul City Documentary, building a multiracial racial utopia in 1970s NC 0 C. Slotterback The message below came to my inbox via my ACSP Secretary role, so I thought I'd pass it along to UNIVerse.  Sara Giustini, engagement coordination for the PBS series REEL SOUTH, reached out related to a new documentary called Soul City.  See the trailer here.  The film tells the story of a group of civil rights activists who attempted to build a multiracial utopia - Soul City - in the hear to North Carolina's Klan country during the 1970s.     Ms. Giustini is interested in connecting with planning faculty and departments to explore potential partnerships.  The film is available for free and she can offer access to online platforms (e.g. OVEE) that allow for interactive viewing and dialogue.  I chatted with her a couple of weeks ago and she was excited about the opportunity to connect with academics in our field.  She had some creative ideas for building engagement around screening the film.  If the film is of interest related to your teaching or research, I encourage you to reach out to her at sarabethgiustini@gmail.com. .............. The conversation with Sara Giustini also got me thinking about how we might use documentaries and other films in more creative ways in our courses.  While films are ever more accessible online, I wonder if others have used creative platforms along with films in order to stimulate real time conversation among students, with the community, or even across institutions.  It would be great to hear about your approaches.  Thanks!

CFP: Spaces of Struggle 2017 - A Mini-Conference on Radical Planning 0 B. Gauger Spaces of Struggle 2017 | A Mini-Conference on Radical Planning October 11, 2017  |  Denver, Colorado Directly preceding the ACSP conference Website: radicalplanning.wordpress.com Conference contact: sos.radplan@gmail.com While planning offers hope for better cities, radical scholars and planners have exposed a troubled history of the complicity of planning in perpetuating spatialized inequity, injustice, and domination.  This mini-conference addresses both the theoretical and practical aspects of an invigorated contemporary radical planning agenda, posing critical questions in pursuit of better ways forward. Inspired by the first Spaces of Struggle held in 2016 in Portland, Oregon, this year’s mini-conference offers a space of exchange for the many voices who believe radical practice and scholarship are crucial to understanding and challenging mainstream systems and practices. We assemble doctoral students, scholars and faculty from across the globe, as well as activists, artists, and community representatives. Spaces of Struggle is a commentary on and complement to ACSP 2017 events, activities and presentations. While we welcome a variety of critical and radical perspectives, proposals should engage directly with the histories, theories, and practices of urban planning.  Applicants will be selected and organized into panels and roundtable sessions based on the relevance of their proposal to the conference themes and the potential for dialogue among participants. ---------------- Submission deadline: May 1, 2017 Paper Panel Sessions: These sessions will consist of panels of three to four scholarly papers addressing different themes or concentrations in radical planning. Presenters will have 15-minutes to read or discuss their paper, followed by audience questions and discussion. To apply to present a paper, please submit a 250-word abstract proposal outlining (1) the subject of the paper and your research approach (community project, research project, dissertation project, etc.), and (2) how it intersects with other themes and issues of radical planning.  Include 3 keywords. Special Topic Roundtable Discussions: These less structured sessions will be organized around themes or specific topics that emerge from both the paper and roundtable submissions. Three to five discussants will have 5-minutes to introduce how their scholarship intersects with radical planning and then engage the audience in an open conversation. To apply to participate as a discussant in a roundtable discussion, please submit a 250-word statement of interest. The statement should (1) describe how you position your research, activism and/or community experience within the themes and issues of radical planning, and (2) conclude with one or two specific questions for discussion. The questions that will shape our discussion will be drawn directly from selected panelist submissions. Please submit your application to sos.radplan@gmail.com by midnight on Monday, May 1 with the subject line “Space of Struggle 2017: application”. Include your full name, affiliation and position, and contact information. You may apply to present at both the paper and roundtable sessions but will be limited to one presentation. Selected presenters will be notified by mid-June. Participants will be required to submit their conference papers or discussion outline by the end of September 2017. ---------------- Statement on Accessibility and Accommodation: In keeping with radical values and positions, we are dedicated to working with our colleagues and communities to find reasonable accommodations whenever possible to facilitate alternative presentation or participation formats for those who may face barriers due to political, financial, medical, ability or other accessibility concerns and restrictions. This may include but is not limited to the use of digital technologies or presentations read by proxy. Suggested topics: Radical planning movements and practices Radical practice, policy, and professionals Anarchist, socialist, feminist, and/or queer planning Direct action and social movements Informality and insurgency across the globe Radical planning issues and themes Dissensus, democracy, and agonistic pluralism White supremacy, racism, and xenophobia Colonialism, migration, and indigeneity Neoliberalization/market fundamentalism Financialization Gentrification, race, eviction, and displacement Policing, law, and the State Technology, software, and innovation Labor, energy, and work Intersectionality and identity The body, gender, sexuality, and social reproduction Ability and access Infrastructures, logistics, and networks Environments, ecologies, and natures Housing, property, and the Commons Zoning, regulation, and control Radical planning epistemologies and pedagogies Radical and activist research methodologies Expertise, data, and knowledge Teaching radical planning, publishing, media, and knowledge networks Historical and comparative analyses of radical planning practice Co-organizers: Bri Gauger, University of Michigan Sarah Gelbard, McGill University Carla Maria Kayanan, University of Michigan Julie Mah, University of Toronto Danielle Rivera, University of Colorado Boulder Stephen Sherman, University of Illinois Raksha Vasudevan, University of Texas

CFP: ACSP 2017 proposed session on Neighborhood-Based Retail 0 E. Talen CFP: ACSP 2017 proposed session on Neighborhood-Based Retail   Session organizers: Emily Talen, University of Chicago, and Conrad Kickert, University of Cincinnati   Street-level retailing used to be the life-blood of thriving urban neighborhoods, but neighborhood-based retail, especially with localized ownership (mom and pop stores) struggles to survive. Many factors have led to the demise of street-level retailing, and many of these factors seem to be beyond anyone’s control: car-based consumer culture, online shopping, zoning that encourages segregated land use, corporate ownership and chain stores, and internet-based social contact. This session will consider the death and life of active frontages and neighborhood-based retail, including issues related to the maintenance of active frontages, small businesses, and independent retail ownership. What’s keeping main streets and active retailing from thriving, and what is less controllable (market realities) vs. more controllable (government regulations)? What incentives or financing mechanisms have successfully supported neighborhood-based retailing? We welcome papers that explore the issue of active streets and neighborhood-based retail from a variety of perspectives: urban design, marketing, finance, governance, regulation, and public policy.   Please email Emily Talen (talen@uchicago.edu) or Conrad Kickert (kickercd@ucmail.uc.edu) if you would be interested in joining our session.
