Call for Proposals: Cities Methodologies October 2014
Call closes: 20 June 2014, 5pm
Exhibition dates: 28 – 31 October 2014
Cities Methodologies, organised by UCL Urban Laboratory, is a pan-UCL initiative to showcase innovative methods in urban research, drawing together work from undergraduate programmes, through to PhD studies, staff, and the wider research community.
We invite proposals for exhibits and events for the main Cities Methodologies 2014, which will be held in the Slade Research Centre between 28 – 31 October. Applications are invited from UCL staff, students and alumni, and other external researchers using innovative methods to understand cities.
Visitors to Cities Methodologies encounter diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition‚ from archival studies to statistical analyses, practice-led art and design work to oral history, writing, walking, film-making and photography. Proposals for exhibits and events that engage with the city are invited from any discipline, right across the built environment, the arts and humanities, social and historical sciences, engineering, laws, life sciences, biomedical sciences, and maths and physical sciences. Cities Methodologies aims to promote cross- and inter-disciplinary work, and to showcase recent research on a wide range of cities.
To submit a proposal please visit our website here, complete the form and follow the submission instructions, returning it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 20 June 2014.
Joint and group applications are particularly welcomed. Queries to email@example.com.
