Cities Methodologies 2014: Call for Proposals

19 May 2014

Cities Methodologies is a pan-UCL initiative to showcase innovative methods in urban research, drawing together work from undergraduate programmes, through to PhD studies, staff, and the wider research community

Walking Methodologies audience

We invite proposals for exhibits and events for the main Cities Methodologies 2014, which will be held in the Slade Research Centre between 28 - 31 October.

Applications are invited from UCL staff, students and alumni, and other researchers using innovative methods to understand cities.

Visitors to Cities Methodologies encounter diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition‚ from archival studies to statistical analyses, practice-led art and design work to oral history, writing, walking, film-making and photography. Proposals for exhibits and events that engage with the city are invited from any discipline, right across the built environment, the arts and humanities, social and historical sciences, engineering, laws, life sciences, biomedical sciences, and maths and physical sciences. Cities Methodologies aims to promote cross- and inter-disciplinary work, and to showcase recent research on a wide range of cities.
