Bloustein School to host fifth annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference, Feb.28

February 21, 2013

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy will host the fifth annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference on Thursday, February 28, 2013 in the Special Events Forum, Civic Square Building, 33 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. with presentations starting at 8:45 a.m. The event honors the memory of the late Professor Donald Krueckeberg, who passed away in 2006.

Dr. Krueckeberg is remembered as “the bow-tied, bearded, meticulous, smiling professional upholder of academic, administrative and ethical standards; a passionate lover of cities and city pleasures who in his last years adored living a five-minute walk from work; a skillful skier, sailor and yachting commodore; and a quiet but steely moral guide to life in all its ups and downs.”

Professor Krueckeberg left a notable legacy in his work, service, and family. As Professor and Associate Dean for Master’s and Professional Programs at the Bloustein School, Dr. Krueckeberg edited academic journals, served as President of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Certified Planners and authored texts considered pathbreaking in their fields.

With the growing recognition of the Bloustein School as a major contributor to urban, planning, and policy studies, the Krueckeberg Conference has grown into a showcase of 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’s doctoral program, in recent years the conference has expaned to include doctoral candidates in planning and public policy from other schools. This year’s conference includes participants from the University of Delaware, Rutgers-Camden, Cornell University, Temple University, The New School, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York University, and Columbia University.

In addition to the doctoral presentations, a keynote lecture, “Open, Responsible, and Committed: Knowledge Justification in a Post-Critical Academy,” will be given by Joshua Clegg, Professor of Psychology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY during a lunch session.

The complete agenda may be viewed online or downloaded.
