The City (Re)Shaped: Exploring the nexus between politics, memory, and urbanism in the built environment

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesKey-note speaker and plenary lectures at conferences


This multi-disciplinary seminar aims to further our understanding of the intertwined dynamic nature of the Politics of Urbanism and the Urbanism of Politics as manifested in many cities around the world. Conversely, it questions how cities and everyday urban life are used – and abused – in the containment of these wider national conflicts, and it explores their potential for achieving the self-sustaining moderation, constructive channelling or resolution.
