Postgraduate Urban Research Group: Stadtkolloquium (London)

Stadtkolloquium is an interdisciplinary postgraduate research group and part of the UCL Urban Laboratory. We meet several times throughout the year in London to discuss our individual PhD work and theoretical, practical and methodological questions and issues related to researching cities. The format ranges from monthly meetings, reading groups, workshops and an annual conference.
We would like to extend an invitation to urban-related researchers at UCL and to other universities across the UK.  Relevant disciplines might include, but are not limited to, fields such as Geography, Architecture, Anthropology, Literature, Cultural Studies, Development Studies, History, Environmental Studies, Health Sciences, Fine Arts, Planning, and Engineering.
If you’re interested in joining, add yourself to our mailing list at:
The next scheduled meetings are:
20 October 2011
17 November 2011
15 December 2011
Each will be from 4-6pm in room 304 of the Pearson Building, UCL Dept of Geography. A portion of each meeting will include presentations or discussion sessions related to recent research/writings. For the October
20 meeting, we have one confirmed presenter and would like to open up space in particular for newly-starting PhD students to talk a little about what they’re considering for their research. If you’d like to present at any of the three, or have an idea for an urban-related reading group you’d like to see, please email Amil who is coordinating the autumn schedule:
Our annual conference will be March 26,27 so please mark your calendar. We have received excellent feedback from the past two years and look forward to another great meeting of international urban postgraduate researchers.
Any questions, ideas or comments, please email
