Session on Housing in London (at Leeds)

The MA in Global Urban Justice and the Cities and Social Justice Cluster of the School of Geography (University of Leeds UK), together with the Contested Cities project, invite you to:

Monday, March 7th, 4:30-6:30PM: The London Housing Crisis: a View from the North 

Location: Geography Seminar Room, Garstang 7th floor, just inside main entrance of Geography

Dr. Paul Watt, Birkbeck, University of London

Dr. Desiree Fields, University of Sheffield

Dr. Stuart Hodkinson, University of Leeds

Moderator: Dr. Alex Schafran, University of Leeds, CITY Debates editor

This roundtable presentation will feature new research and ideas which are part of an upcoming special feature in the journal CITY on the London housing crisis. Scholars will present a mix of London-centred research and more comparative understandings, especially on the increasingly important role of transnational landlords in transforming real estate markets across the world, followed by debate and discussion. This seminar is an advanced premier of the special issue, which will be released in late April in London.

No RSVP required, questions and queries welcome. Please pass this along to interested parties, especially off campus.

Interventions in Urban and Spatial Justice is a new public speaker series organised by the School of Geography to create new critical insights on urban and spatial justice through a productive dialogue between the different disciplinary perspectives and approaches of our human geography research clusters: Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy, Cities and Social Justice, and Citizenship and Belonging. It is run by staff and students of our two Masters Programmes: the MA in Global Urban Justice and the MSc in Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
