is an academic forum organised by PhD students from various disciplines brought
together by their research work and interest in urbanism. It originated at
University College London (UCL) with the support of the Urban Laboratory. It
aims to encourage the dissemination and discussion of PhD level urban research
in a friendly and constructive atmosphere by providing open and informal
outlets in which to air theoretical, practical and methodological questions and
issues amongst peer PhD students across departments and universities. It hopes to generate lively round-table discussion on diverse
urban questions across disciplines including but not
limited to, Geography, Architecture, Anthropology, Literature, Cultural
Studies, Development Studies, History, Environmental Studies, Health Sciences,
Fine Arts, Planning, and Engineering.
Besides organising annual and monthly workshops, Stadtkolloquium also runs reading and writing groups, urban walks and other participatory research events.
Stadtkolloquium warmly welcomes and strongly encourages the involvement of research students from London, UK and international institutions.
