Sheffield Urbanism

Sheffield Urbanism is an initiative to share and showcase the exceptional critical mass of interdisciplinary expertise across the Faculty of Social Sciences around how we understand, research and engage with processes of urbanisation, and the politics of production and reproduction of urban life.


The Sheffield Urbanism Lecture Series is delivered annually and provides an opportunity to look within, across and beyond the Urban Institute’s themes to explore novel propositions in a three-part series. 

Through Sheffield Urbanism, we also seek to demonstrate our commitment to mentoring and supporting the next generation of urban scholars in diverse and precarious institutional and urban contexts around the world, through pedagogical interventions and a dedicated Sheffield Early Career Researchers Network in Urban Studies.
