Bedrock Faith takes place in the early 1990s - a time when Chicago had yet another Mayor Daley and the city continued to grapple with a number of other challenges and opportunities. Looking at a number of guidebooks from this time, we’ll learn about how the city was portrayed to outside visitors and locals interested in learning more about their city. Presented by urbanologist and author Max Grinnell.
As an urbanologist, geographer, historian, and professor, Max Grinnell finds his purpose in describing, critiquing, and analyzing the urban condition. He’s an expert on urban design, planning, public art, the creative economy, and the history of cities, and has written several books including Hyde Park, Illinois and 24 Great Walks in Chicago.
