Karachi, The port city of the country has been going through a kind of social change that gives birth to the conflicts of emerging behavior patterns against traditional social values.
This was stated by Arif Hasan while sharing his views in an engaging talk titled ‘Changing Sociology of Karachi: Causes, Trends and Repercussions’ held at The Second Floor (T2F) on Tuesday evening.
‘Karachi’s transforming from a cosmopolitan colonial port city to a multi-ethnic, multi-class mega city, so it is natural for it to witness a social change and the conflict between emerging behavior patterns and traditional social values,’ said the consultant to the Orangi Pilot Project, which has garnered international acclaim.
Hasan is not only an architect, but also a teacher, social researcher and writer, who is renowned for his involvement with low-income settlement programs. The lecture was organized as part of the ongoing Yohsin Lecture Series arranged by Habib University Foundation (H.U.F). This was the third lecture of the series, which aims to provide a space for dialogue and inquiry, and to promote academic discourse.
