Being in the City
6:30pm, Friday 7th May, J.Z. Young Lecture Theatre, UCL
This roundtable discussion, featuring Matthew Beaumont, Kasia Boddy, Rachel Bowlby, Gregory Dart, Michael Newton and the film-maker and novelist Chris Petit, is designed to explore particular modes of ‘being in the city’. It will address both specific modes of relating to the modern metropolis (convalescing, planting, commuting, daydreaming, lodging and bombing) and the quality of everyday life in contemporary cities (the condition of metropolitan being, so to speak, at the beginning of the twenty-first century). What does being in the contemporary metropolitan city entail? What does being entail in the contemporary metropolitan city?
'Being in the City' is part of the UCL UrbanLab's Cities Methodologies 2010
