Urban Space & the Body Conference

An International Conference of the "Cross-Disciplinary Urban Space” Network. Organizers: Silvia Ross (UCC) and Giulio Giovannoni (Università degli Studi di Firenze)

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: GILLIAN ROSE, Professor of Cultural Geography, The Open University SERENELLA IOVINO, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Turin Cities consist of much more than the built environment and the physical space they occupy: they are experienced by and through the body. As humans, we inhabit, traverse and construct our urban space, shaping the city, as it, in turn, shapes us. This interdisciplinary, international conference seeks to explore the many ways in which the city is perceived by the body and how urban space influences the corporeality of those who pass through or abide within it. As part of the ‘Cross-disciplinary Approaches to Urban Space’ network, this two-day conference investigates the ways in which different disciplines engage with the body and urban issues, in areas ranging from architecture, urban planning, literature, film studies, geography, history, linguistics, philosophy, art history, sociology, drama and theatre studies, anthropology, among others. Programme available at link above. REGISTRATION All participants and attendees must pay the fee which covers the two days and is used to defray catering and administrative costs.
