What Makes a Resilient City?

On April 19, 2013, the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture sponsored a conference on the theme, “What makes a resilient city?”  Keynote speakers were complexity scholar Dr. Thomas Homer-Dixon, author of The Upside of Down: Catastrophe, Creativity and the Renewal of Civilization, and sociologist Dr. Eric Klinenberg, author of Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago.  I wrote the Executive Summary and Full Report of the conference.
