City Futures and contemporary urban research

Event type: UT
Date: 11/07/2018

Beijing 11-12 July 2018

This workshop will bring together senior researchers from the UK and China whose work focuses on thinking about city futures. The globe is increasingly urban. The future of China and the future of most of the world is urban. So how we understand the cultures of the future city, its private interests and public spaces that bring together rich and poor, migrants and residents, old employment and new companies, old ways of working and revolutions in technology will generate challenges that are common across the world. Whether the answer to these challenges is bespoke and local or universal and scalable is less clear. The workshop will consider these futures and how a dialogue between research in China and urban studies globally might open up new ways of thinking about the future city.
