'Divided Cities II: Culture, Infrastructure and the Urban Future'

This afternoon workshop sets out to explore how various kinds of cultural production, from literary writing to visual art, responds to the divided city in the twenty-first century, asking how they might also allow us to think through more inclusive and desegregated urban futures. After lunch (12.30pm) there will be a panel of three short papers (2pm), followed by an artist’s talk from zine creator Laura Oldfield Ford (4pm), and then a keynote lecture from urban theorist Stephen Graham (5.15pm). All are welcome from across the disciplines to attend all or part of the workshop.

This free workshop includes a sandwich lunch, courtesy of TORCH’s Race & Resistance Programme, and will conclude with a wine reception.
