In a world that is both rapidly urbanising and globalising, it is widely acknowledged that it is crucial to facilitate urban education that is based on global knowledge and addresses international issues. But it is not always clear how this can be best implemented in practice, especially to ensure urban education plays a constitutive role in addressing issues of urban inequality and global disparities in the production of urban knowledge, and in the application of expertise.
University College London (UCL) will be hosting an international symposium on global approaches to urban higher education on 16 and 17 September 2015. This event forms part of the Urban Lab+ initiative funded by the European Union’s Erasmus Mundus programme and including eight urban laboratories from across the world.
Individuals and groups are invited to make proposals for short presentations (10 minutes) and/or longer papers (20 minutes) that respond to some of the challenges and dilemmas posed by the internationalisation of urban education. The website includes guidance on the themes, questions and related areas the proposals are encouraged to address.
Please send a maximum of 250 words for group or individual proposals for presentations or papers to email@example.com by 11.00 AM GMT, Monday 27 April 2015. Please include the name and email of a lead contact for group proposals.Read older posts from this section
