Ruth Glass and London: Aspects of Change 1964-2014

Start: Dec 3, 2014 5:30:00 PM
End: Dec 3, 2014 7:00:00 PM

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.

The Graffiti Sessions
Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory, the Graffiti Dialogues Network at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), and London’s Southbank Centre, the Graffiti Sessions will gather a wide group of experts to debate how to advance issues surrounding graffiti. We aim to identify new horizons for future city strategies on graffiti and opportunities and challenges for evolving creative practice, towards places that are both safe and sociable.
