Bristol Festival of the Future City

I will be speaking on a panel at the Festival of the Future City in Bristol this Thursday. I will be talking about a co-authored paper I have been involved in, with Ben Gidley and Sundas Ali, for Oxford University and the Government Office for Science. The paper is on Identity and Belonging in UK Cities, and the panel will discuss immigration in UK cities.



Here is a list of¬†Conferences I have attended and delivered a paper to. I haven’t done one for a while. My experiences, like many people’s, have been varied, to say the least. From seemingly hundreds of people at the National Media Museum, to tiny streamed sessions in even tinier rooms, to a handful of people only just breaking into double figures. Some conferences are listless, going through the motions. But the recent conference on Gillian Rose at Durham was excessively agonistic and had a profound effect on me, essentially leading to my second monograph, A Book of the Broken Middle (Repeater).
