Urban Spaces and Scalar Traces (City Maps)

  • Birkbeck, University Square Stratford (map)

In this workshop, Clancy Wilmott from the University of Manchester will lead a workshop with Scott Rodgers (Birkbeck) that asks participants to consider urban cultural studies through spatial theory - specifically concepts of scale, situatedness, and global-local encounters. Based at Birkbeck’s Stratford Campus, participants will conduct an in-situ geo-graphical exploration of traces across material and digital landscapes, evident and pertinent to their own research, in order to map how different scales – such as global, local, architectural and bodily - blend together, co-forming and conflicting in everyday urban spaces.
