Breakfast is served from 09:00
ISS welcomes Matthias Bernt, Senior Researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space.
Rodrigo Firmino is an Associate Professor in Urban Management at the Pontifical Catholic University (PUCPR) in Curitiba, Brazil, and a CNPq (Brazil’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) Research Fellow. "Besides the hype and enthusiasm surrounding the possibilities of an increasing capacity for central control of the urban environment justified by the dream of smart urbanism, the city is also made up of a series of scattered networks of technologies and practices."
Simin Davoudi, Professor of Environmental Policy & Planning at School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and Associate Director of the Institute for Sustainability at Newcastle University will critically review different methodologies that have been employed to define the city-region before focusing on the prevailing conception of the city-region as a functional economic space and the dominant top-down methodology which is used for defining its boundaries.
Martin Zebracki – Reconfiguring the City through Digital Practices: User-Created Contents and Conflicts in Public Art Engagements.
Digital (mobile) technologies pose new challenges to understanding the city and making sense of virtual urban life. Zebracki will present a study on digitally mediated engagement with the urban public, and discuss the conceptual and methodological implications to wider research on the digital urban condition.
As the inaugural speaker of the Cities and Society seminar series, we are excited to present urban scholar Andy Merrifield.
