In 1964, the Centre for Urban Studies at University College London (UCL), led by Ruth Glass, published the book London: Aspects of Change. This brought together ten chapters by sociologists, geographers, planners, historians and health scientists to sketch a general social profile of a city that had undergone rapid contemporary change. The book today is perhaps best known for Ruth Glass’s coining, in her carefully crafted introduction, of the term ‘gentrification’, which has subsequently spawned an extensive and ever-growing field of urban research and debate.

Book Launch: Sustainable London? The Future of a Global City

The Urban Salon series is committed to encouraging collaboration and networking across the different London colleges, where there are significant concentrations of urban researchers working on many different cities across the world within very close proximity. This enables us to adopt a pro-active approach to stimulating international and comparative urban research. We bring together presenters and discussants who work on different cities but share thematic interests to encourage conceptual debate across a variety of different urban contexts.
