Political Textures of the City
A Workshop on Word and Bricks in the Global South

Wednesday 23 November 2011

10.00am - 6.00pm
Room 1.69/1.70, Humanities Bridgeford Street Building University of Manchester

Keynote Speaker: Professor Matthew Gandy (UCL)

This interdisciplinary workshop will debate the production of material landscapes as political actions, referring to spatial tactics, architectural and material interventions, and the reassembling of urban imaginaries. Cities of the global south, characterised by acute inequalities, expansive popular urban mobilisations and frequently precarious and inequitable state policies, are particularly fertile spaces for discussing such territorial politics.

We welcome attendees from all disciplines. Places are limited, however, so if you would like to attend please send an email to Dr. James Scorer james.scorer@manchester.ac.uk. Places will be allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis.
