The School of Humanities, Ateneo de Manila University, and ESSC are offering the first lecture in a three-part series on the LUCID Project, a collaborative interdisciplinary research project, and features the research of scholars and development practitioners from the Philippines and Belgium, from the fields of geoinformatics, development economics, and philosophy.

In this first lecture, Andres Ignacio, PhD, ESSC Planning Director and Geomatics Manager, will speak on land use impact assessment, and how the use of various Geomatics technologies (GIS, Remote Sensing, etc.) are used in understanding social justice questions.

This lecture series on the LUCID project hopes to share an example of how interdisciplinary research for development can inspire future research and bridge different cultural gaps – between researchers and practitioners; between researchers, practitioners, and the people who experience the heavier impact of structural injustice; and between mainstream society and its marginalized sectors and communities who are at the core of these issues.

We hope that this lecture series presents an example of how interdisciplinary research for development can inspire future research, and can bridge different cultural gaps—between researchers and practitioners; between researchers, practitioners, and the people who experience the most impact of structural injustice; and between mainstream society as a whole and the marginalized sectors and communities at the center of these issues—that are experienced in these projects.

The first lecture is scheduled on 20 September 202, Tuesday, 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM at Faber Hall (FH 101). For those who wish to physically attend, please register at go.ateneo.edu/LUCID1A. For online participation, please register at go.ateneo.edu/LUCID1B for the Zoom link.
