This major international conference, to take place at Magdalene College´s
Cripps Court in July, focuses on the contemporary city as a witness to
changing political topographies and socio-economic transformations, which is
in turn witnessed by a multitude of cultural undertakings. The conference
brings together top scholars working on the city from a variety of
disciplines and practitioners (architects, artists) working with and in
urban environments through a variety of media. Graduate Panels will
furthermore allow the presentation and discussion of current work by
emerging scholars. Finally, an area of the venue will be dedicated to
academic posters, the screening of video work, and the installation of urban
sound artists.


The first afternoon features keynote contributions from Daniel Libeskind and
Richard Sennett. Day two is devoted to exploring questions of (in)evidence
in contemporary cities, with speakers to include: Victor Burgin, Edward
Dimendberg,  Henrik Reeh, and Karen Till. Day three has a particular focus
on Berlin, with speakers to include: Thomas Elsaesser, Mary Fulbrook,
Charity Scribner, and Janet Ward. Leading Berlin artists will also
present/perform: Stih & Schnock (Public/installation art), Martin Nachbar
and Jochen Roller (choreography), and Stefanie Bürkle (photography).
