The last workshop of the Dislocating Urban Studies series will revisit the concepts of Critical Urban Studies

The 17th and 18th of May will be the last Workshop of the Dislocating Urban Studies series. During the series, speakers engaged in a critical dialogue about empirical, methodological, and theoretical work that expands the boundaries of urban studies. 

In Workshop 1, presenters engaged with forgotten or little-known anti-colonial and anti-capitalist urban concepts or theorists. In Workshop 2, empirical cases from “off the map” of urban studies were analyzed; In Workshop 3, participants explored methodological approaches that allow for research in understudied geographies and contribute to global comparative urbanism.

The objective of the last Workshop is to challenge, revisit or rethink the usefulness of key concepts in the field (e.g. financialization, gentrification, displacement, neoliberal urbanism, right to the city). Discussants will be Matthias Bernt, Thomas Maloutas, Miguel A. Martínez, and Monika Streule.
