The future of urban epistemics

The final session of Sheffield Urbanism 2022 will explore ‘The Future of Urban Epistemics’ will take place on Wednesday 14th December 2022 3pm-5pm and is divided in two parts.

The Future of Urban Epistemics

In Part 1 (1500-1600) Professor Beth Perry will propose an agenda around ‘urban epistemics’, key issues for future study and how these connect across the Urban Institute’s research themes. Four responses will be given by Professor Michele Lancione, Dr Linda Westman, Aïcha Diallo and Professor Kavita Philip who will connect their own work to the theme of urban epistemics and suggest new topics for enquiry. In Part 2 (1600-1700) we will work collectively in two spaces – in-person and online – to generate collective propositions and questions for the field of urban epistemics.

The lecture/workshop will be chaired by Professors Vanesa Castán Broto, AbdouMaliq Simone and Beth Perry and followed by a drinks reception.

The Sheffield Urbanism Lecture series is an initiative of the Urban Institute to stimulate dialogue, discussion and understanding of processes of urbanization and urban life. It is intended as a space to reimagine both the conceptualizations and narratives of urban studies. The 2022 lecture series will build from the UI’s theme on ‘Co-producing Urbanisms’, with lectures from Professor Beth Perry (University of Sheffield), Professor Kavita Philip (University of British Colombia) and responses from Professor Michele Lancione (Polytechnic University of Turin), Dr Linda Westman (University of Sheffield) and Aïcha Diallo (University of Sheffield).

Co-production and the Future of Urban Epistemics comprises two lectures and one agenda-setting workshop. It builds on the success of our first two Sheffield Urbanism Lecture Series in 2020 and 2021 on the Urban Institute’s Youtube Channel.
