Transforming Informality Conference
Urban informality continues to fascinate, confound and provoke theorists and practitioners across the Global North and South. The conceptualisation of the informal has morphed and shifted within different registers of meaning, offering distinctly powerful narratives yet falling for the most part within neat disciplinary boundaries.
The Bartlett Doctoral Informality Network invites you to join us in an exploration of eleven interrogations that seek to transform our understanding of informality and its interaction with the built environment. These interrogations draw upon diverse sites and literatures, yet coalesce to respond to notions of transformation, place-making, power relations, infrastructures and exchanges, embedded within the informal. This two-day symposium marks the penultimate stage in a book project, which draws together authors from across the Bartlett and international experts.
We have eleven contributions and two editors from the research student community. The book will have commentaries by globally renowned experts on the topic: Fran Tonkiss (LSE), Swati Chattopadhyay (UC Santa Barbara),Kim Dovey (U of Melbourne) and Catalina Ortiz (UCL).
The open event will take place on the afternoon and evening of the 27th of October and the morning of the 28th.
