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.
Call for proposals
If you are interested in discussing your work, please send us your PhD
outline (1-2 pages) and/or an outline of what you would like to discuss by
15. December 2009.
Call for papers
Due to the time-frame, the presentation should ideally select a few specific aspects of the research project, such as questions around your empirical material, methodological approaches, the writing process, development of research questions, finding a manageable PhD topic, etc. Therefore, participants will be asked to prepare a short paper (2-4 pages) by 10. January 2010. This paper should outline their presentation and/or include questions for the group. It will be circulated and read by all participants along with the PhD proposals as preparation for the 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
