Who Speaks and Acts?

This site is a selected record of my community-centered projects and pedagogies in the context of architecture and the digital public humanities. The published artifacts are structured around a set of interconnected engagements with questions of participatory politics, social production of space, anti-colonial digital praxis, and queer feminist positionality. Together, they center forms of knowledge and expertise across voice and social difference. — Kush Patel, Ph.D.
