Further instruction/instructor issues to be figured:

Mark Shephard: U of Buffalo, curator of Sensible Cities and …. 

Duncan: do u want to be listed/ co-instructor/ co-convener? U want to give a couple of lectures and/or do u want to actively manage/respond to students?)

List of guest presenters/speakers:

Usman Haque, Caroline Woolard,  …

There is a long list of these but they will be in the course as “video quotes” so there might be up to one 5 per class in some cases, which will include pointers to longer presentations already online. We would film most of these fresh to get succinct focused representation of different positions and approaches.
