At the frontiers of the urban

10 November - 12 November
Organized by: UCL Urban Laboratory
Venue: , University College London
Gower Street

Urban societies are undergoing immense changes; how are urban concepts and practices responding?


UCL Urban Laboratory will host a major international conference between 10 – 12 November, convening cutting-edge scholarship and dialogue as we seek to stimulate new conceptualisations of the urban, resonant with distinctive urban experiences across the globe. 


The programme for At the frontiers of the urban: thinking concepts and practices globally has now been announced, with over 150 established and emerging scholars and practitioners taking part across almost 50 sessions that consider how land, investment, finance, law and the state are reshaping urban spaces; how processes of reproducing everyday life, identity politics, popular mobilization and contestation are remaking urban experiences; and how challenges of urbanisation, such as climate change, data, health, housing and poverty are redefining urban futures.
