*Venue and time will be announced*

Reconstruction is a treacherously familiar word, but its domicile within different disciplines, research fields and also within practice,
renders ambiguity and makes it highly intriguing. In this series of sessions we use it as a vehicle to uncover enactments of the past in contemporary society, asking the inevitable questions of who, when, where, why, how?

The session are set up around keynotes that will bring insights into a spectrum of interpretations of, and contexts for, the concept. The keynotes are followed by conversations where scholars from different disciplines and fields meet in informed discussions, in particular taking on spatial and temporal aspects of the concept.

The sessions are framed by Prof. Gabi Dolff-Bonekämper, TU Berlin, holder of the 2017 Humboldt Stipend Swedish-German Programme Research Awards for Scientific Cooperation, and hosted by the research cluster Curating the City within the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies & the Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg.

Past events 2016

Co-curating the city: universities and urban heritage past and future
Time: 11/22/2016 at 9:00 AM
Location: UCL Bloomsbury/ UCL East (Stratford, London)

Workshop: Two site-based, invitation-only workshops at UCL Bloomsbury/ UCL East (Stratford, London) November 22nd and 23rd 2016, and University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg (April 2017). This workshop is the first of two which will explore how universities, as mixed communities of interest dispersed across urban sites, are re-evaluating their institutional identities and heritage in the context of place-based spatial development. They will examine two development initiatives led by UCL and University of Gothenburg, which seek to engage with local people and neighborhoods, and in turn participate in a re-shaping of ideas, narratives, and lived experience of urban heritage for the future. They will further consider the parallels between universities and museums as institutions engaged in the development of new urban imaginaries in postcolonial cities through collaborative processes of co-production with local populations. The workshop is hosted by Clare Melhuish (Urban Lab/ Bartlett Commission for Learning Environments) and Dean Sully (Archaeology)
