Conflict in Cities and the Contested State Graduate Workshop

As part of its Graduate Programme “Conflict in Cities and the Contested State“ will be holding its Graduate Workshop at Clare College, University of Cambridge on the 25th and 26th of November 2010. The keynote lecture and workshop are open to the public and registration is not required.

Beirut, Belfast, Berlin, Brussels, Kirkuk, Mostar, Nicosia and Tripoli (Lebanon) will be the subject of a one-day workshop, in which the project’s 3rd year PhD students will be presenting their individual research and opening the discussion to a wider audience. Professor Stephen Graham will launch the workshop on the 25th of November with a Keynote Lecture, entitled “Cities as Battlespace: The New Military Urbanism”

The purpose of this workshop is to gain insights into the diversity of approaches to and experiences of conflict in the cities investigated. In turn, the researchers will seek productive modes for comparative study between the different cities. Beyond the individual presentations, the workshop will also provide a space where presenters and the audience can deliberate on and learn from each other’s methodological and ethical challenges.
