This seminar series aims to map the public nature of urban, cultural, and research practices that are articulated through critical discourses of emerging centres of knowledge, such as research labs, centres of pedagogy, independent and HE based academic entities. Through dialogue and shared practice, seminars seek to establish and describe structures and networks of pedagogy and research that escape traditions of state, institutional, and colonial power and challenge more established disciplinary constraints. The series is an opportunity to explore the role of emerging urban, cultural, and research centres in shaping new forms of collective discourse.
The series is organised by Advanced Urban, a centre for interdisciplinary urban research that intersects new materiality, media, and space. https://www.advancedurban.org/
