What room is there for grand monuments, ancient ruins and triumphal arches in the architectural 21st century? And what does the current explosion of global fascination with the ruins of ancient Palmyra – following their re-ruination by ISIS and recapture by the Russian-backed Syrian army – tell us about contemporary attitudes to monumentality? This talk is pivoted around Palmyra, but digresses into London, Moscow, Warsaw and elsewhere. It explores some ways in which new, old, disavowed and undead forms of monumentality continue to hold sway over the political-aesthetic imaginations of the post-monumental world.

Timescapes of Urban Change
Time and space lie at the centre of discussions on urban redevelopment projects. The making of urban space is in many ways a materialisation of the passing of time socially, financially, and politically. Yet, those using the city inhabit and create a diversity of temporalities. Hence, urban change is underpinned by a multiplicity of temporal narratives, practices and ideologies which operate at different speeds and intensities, sometimes converging, other times conflicting, to produce a particular sense of place.
