Branden Born, UW Urban Planning

Branden is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urban Design and Planning at the University of Washington. His research interests include planning process and social justice, particularly with regard to the inclusion of marginalized populations in societal decision-making; land use planning and regionalism; and urban food systems.
Branden has been active in developing food system theory and practice for over ten years. He helped draft Fertile Ground: Planning for the Madison/Dane County Food System, one of the earliest university food system assessments, while a graduate student at Wisconsin. In 2005-2006 he was the faculty leader for a Luce Foundation supported studio course at UW-Seattle, for which the client was the City of Seattle, that focused on defining and enhancing the functionality of the Seattle food system. From that class came the Sound Food Report: Enhancing Seattle’s Food System.  He remains the faculty mentor for that program for 2006-2007. He teaches courses on food systems, land use, planning methods, as well as community-based studios. He recently co-authored a paper, Avoiding the Local Trap: Scale and Food Systems in Planning Research. Branden is a member of the American Planning Association, and sits on APA’s Food System Steering Committee.
