Leading researchers gathered together to discuss the key role of urban space in enhancing urban accessibility and creating urban public life as part of the 2017 ‘Communicative Cities and Urban Space: Symposium and Workshop’ was hosted this year at Sinan Literature House, in Shanghai. This event was part of an ongoing collaboration with the RUPC and the Centre for Information and Communication Studies (CICS), of Fudan University, which is a top-tier research centre at one of the leading universities in China.
In 2017 the Research Unit in Public Cultures has made efforts to rethink our relationship to both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. In this spirit, we asked our RUPC Graduate Academy: ‘Does data make a difference?’
The RUPC was pleased to host the seminar “Curating ‘The European refugee crisis’” with our visiting research fellow Dr Karina Horsti, from the University of Jyväskylä.
The 'Multiculturalism and Governance Report: Evaluating Arts Policies and Engaging Cultural Citizenship', authored by RUPC members Rimi Khan, Audrey Yue, Nikos Papastergiadis and Danielle Wyatt, is now available to read online.
