Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange
Kellogg has launched a new multidisciplinary seminar series on Urban Knowledge Exchange.
The seminars will be held over the next two years and at the launch event on 14th March 2018, art historians, a public artist, an architect and a cultural historian will address the question: Is art placed in, or part of, the urban environment? Find out more about the first seminar in the series.
All College members are invited to contribute, to propose speakers for the seminars, and to suggest new topics for discussion. If interested, please contact Kellogg Fellow Dr David Howard. The aim of each seminar is to address a provocative or controversial urban issue, with several speakers invited to pitch their perspectives, before the topic is opened to wider discussion.
David Howard told us the aim of the seminar series is to;
‘provide lively debates on key urban issues affecting society today. The series of seminars brings together a mix of students, academics, practitioners and members of the public interested in cities and city-living. The main aim is to provoke discussion and constructive action, linking current best practice in urban development and emerging areas of research. The seminars are open to all, and are centred on evidence-based knowledge and an ethos of research-practice-educate.’
Tea and coffee will be provided at the start of each seminar, with a drinks reception and food to follow. All are welcome to join us and take part in the discussion.
