UCL Urban Laboratory


Stadtkolloquium-Urban PhD Research Seminar

28 January 2010

The UCL Urban Laboratory is organising an interdisciplinary work-in-progress workshop for PhD students, who would like to present and discuss their research projects

The workshop will provide an open and informal space to discuss your work with regards to theoretical, practical or methodological questions and problems at any stage of your research. The Stadtkolloquium aims to create a supportive environment for urban researchers who would like to get feedback on their work and meet peer PhD students from other departments. It hopes to generate lively round-table discussions on diverse urban questions across various disciplinary backgrounds, such as Geography, Architecture, Anthropology, Literature, Cultural Studies, Development Studies, History, Environmental Studies, Health Sciences, Fine Arts, Planning, Engineering etc.

The 2-day workshop will take place at UCL, 28. & 29. January 2010.  Each participant will be given 25 minutes to present their work, followed by 25 minutes of feedback and discussion.

Dependent on the availability of free spaces, PhD students who would like to attend without presenting are welcome. All participants are expected to read the proposals and papers in preparation for lively feedback and discussions. Please get in contact with:
