Matthew Slaats (Architecture - Urban Planning)

Concentrated on practices that envision new economic modalities in the global south, this project centers on researching the emergence of solidarity economies in Australia and at the same time building an international research relationship between UVA and the Community Economies Research Network based at the University of Western Sydney. This will include interviews/observations with academic researchers and several cooperatives initiatives working in Australia along with attending the January 2020 Researching Post-Capitalist Possibilities Workshop and Conference.
