2015 Workshop

Stadtkolloquium's 6th Annual Workshop took place over Monday 30 - Tuesday 31 March 2015 at University College London.

The workshop was set up to provide an open, informal and intimate space for PhD research students in urban-related disciplines to collaborate and discuss progress amongst peers with regard to topical, theoretical, practical or methodological concerns. We therefore welcomed contributions from students at all stages of the dissertation process. The workshop is unique in that all participants agree to both present their work and support others in doing so in small group sessions. Organisers generated lively roundtable discussions on diverse urban questions across various academic disciplines including Geography, Architecture, History, Anthropology, Literature, Cultural Studies, Development Studies, Arts, Environmental Studies, Gender Studies, Planning, Engineering and beyond.

2. Presenting the past in the contemporary city
3. Conceptualising the urban through difference in comparative studies
4. Cosmopolitanism's manifestations of referential dissonance
5. Class and urbanisation
