Event description

Description

From their emergence in the 19th century to their current global proliferation, camps have been created extensively by and for different populations under the modern state order. Whether employed by national and colonial powers as instruments of control, or constructed ad hoc by displaced populations as makeshift spaces of refuge, camps are used as a versatile instrument for the rearrangement of people in space.

Dr. Irit Katz will present her award winning research that examines the camp as a central instrument by which modern societies and territories are administered, negotiated and re-organised, with the aim of identifying, understanding and re-defining the camp’s multifaceted spatial vocabulary to better understand this encompassing phenomenon which has become increasingly relevant and urgent in today’s migration age.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Irit Katz, Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge

  • Professor Flora Samuel (Chair), Professor of Architecture in the Built Environment, University of Reading
