11-12th September 2018

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 conference 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.
