Talk: ‘Smart Cities’ with Gillian Rose

3pm, Monday 27th November (Week 8), Halford Mackinder Lecture Theatre, School of Geography and the Environment. Facebook event
Following her recent move from The Open University, we would like to warmly welcome Professor Rose as she joins us for a talk. On Monday of 8th Week, we will be hosting this event at the Halford Mackinder Lecture Theatre in the School of Geography and the Environment, where Professor Rose will be speaking about ‘smart cities’, with links to both the Geography Preliminary and Final Honour School courses.
After the talk, there will be an opportunity for a discussion and further questions with Professor Rose. The event is free to attend for GeogSoc members, and is £3 for non-members. If there are students who wish to join the Society, there will be a chance to do so after the event – all you will need to do is pay £3 on the door, and then pay the remainder for annual (£6) or life (£15) membership.
Professor Rose is a widely renowned feminist and cultural geographer, specialising in visual culture and the politics of knowledge production (e.g. who creates what kinds of knowledge, how those knowleges circulate and transform, and what kinds of worlds are thus constituted). We’re pleased to welcome her to the University following her recent arrival in October 2017 as a Professor of Human Geography.
If you have any questions regarding the event, Society or membership, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you and we hope you can make the time to attend the event.
