The purpose of this mini-seminar is to inspire debates on how we can conduct nuanced and truly global studies of urban culture and politics. This can involve comparative urbanism, cross-regional and transnational perspectives as well as multi-disciplinary approaches – all aspects that we are seeking to nurture at the department. For this purpose, we have invited two internationally recognized scholars as keynote speakers: Jennifer Robinson from University College London and Martina Rieker from The American University in Cairo. Prof. Robinson is employed at the UCL Geography Department and has published widely in the field of urban studies, development and political geography. Prof. Rieker is the Director of AUC’s Institute for Gender and Women’s Studies and has worked on urbanism, gender and poverty. We have also invited senior scholars from Danish universities to contribute with interventions.
