Cities can be understood as multifaceted assemblages of persons and things, of memories and future visions, of violence and solidarity, of brick walls and intensive affects. In order to gain further insights into these multiplicities, the City Seminar Workshop aims at bringing together a range of scholars from different disciplines in Cambridge who address urban issues in their work. By bringing into dialogue different conceptual approaches and methodological tools that may be employed when studying the urban, this workshop seeks to stimulate fruitful exchanges and inspiring discussions between younger scholars and established faculty members. Papers will address the issue of Memory and Representation, looking at representations of the urban in memory, art, literature and film, and the topic Materialities of Domination,investigating how the urban built environment may be implicated in relations of force and power. Lastly, the panel Inclusion/Exclusion will deal with borders and divisions in cities, which can be separating, but also inspire resistance or be overcome.
Open to all but online registration is required.
Part of the City Seminar series.
