This one-day symposium will be a significant opportunity to examine the historical development of higher and further education, its geographical expansion, architectural expression and wider socio-economic relations to the city and region, in the past and up to the present.
The focus will be on the interactions between place, planning and architectural design to create effective environments for teaching and academic research; understanding how the social and spatial structure of these major institutions of learning changed over different periods driven in part by local needs and initiatives as well as national policies around higher education.
The symposium will be interdisciplinary and we welcome speakers and attendees from history, geography, town planning, architecture, history of science, education, and allied disciplines who can speak to different time periods, theoretical positions and empirics of particular institutional histories.
There is no charge for the Symposium and lunch will be provided. Please register using the link at the top of the page.
