As part of her British Academy Fellowship Dr Monica Degen is holding two international events in London, the 29th of November, and in Barcelona the 12/13 of December. Both events are bringing together leading urban practitioners involved in the regeneration of London and Barcelona, with academics and community groups, to discuss how the notion of time affects urban regeneration in both cities, see www.sensescitiescultures.com
Focusing on two cities that are exemplars of their urban regeneration in recent years: Barcelona and London, Monica Degen will bring together urban professionals and academics to reflect, from a long-term perspective, on the role of time in the construction and experience of these two cities. By doing this, the event will situate questions around temporality at the forefront of the research agenda on urban change.
