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

The Architecture & Urbanism Research Cluster, sponsored by the Cities Theme and the School of Civil Engineering, invites you to The City (Re)Shaped.

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.

The seminar aims to enhance dialogue between academics and non-academic policy practitioners and community members. It will include keynote speakers, sessions, workshops and round table discussions to debate and explore the seminar themes through theoretical encounters or comparative analytical cases within the MENA, Europe and the rest of the world.
