Cities After Hours

Cities After Hours considers the way in which cities have been the loci of inclusion and exclusion, policing and controlling, after-hours. The historical relevance of the night-time curfew is considered in relation to contemporary policing of the night-time. The impact on the inhabitants of the city streets after hours is considered in relation to the increasing use of “hostile architecture” in public spaces.

Professor Matthew Beaumont and Ruth Austin, founders of the UCL Cities After Hours Colloquium, will be joined by other researchers to consider the city 'after hours' from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

No booking required. Organised as part of the UCL Festival of Culture 2018.
