On Friday, March 12, 2021, the Bloustein School will present the 13th Annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference in Urban Studies, Urban Planning, and Public Policy. The conference is organized by doctoral students for doctoral students engaged in urban planning and policy-related research across disciplines and universities in the tri-state NJ/NY/PA metropolitan region. Named after Professor Donald A. Krueckeberg, the conference commemorates his long running commitment to doctoral education by providing a one-day forum highlighting doctoral student research at the cutting edge of urban studies, planning, and public policy.
A well-known and respected scholar in the planning profession, Professor Krueckeberg’s special interests and contributions were in the areas of planning history, property theory, and land use policy. His books, Introduction to Planning History in the United States, The American Planner: Biographies and Recollections, and Urban Planning Analysis, still serve as important references for scholars and professionals in planning and public policy.
With the growing recognition of the Bloustein School as a major contributor to urban planning and policy studies, the Krueckeberg Conference showcases some of the most unique and forward-thinking research in the discipline. In addition to highlighting the best arguments and the most distinct voices in the Bloustein School and Rutgers University’s doctoral programs, this year’s conference will include doctoral candidates in urban studies, urban planning and public policy from Columbia University, The New School, the University of Pennsylvania, and more.
