Centre for Urban Conflicts Research

UCR workshop ‘Doing Architectural Research’ on 26 June 2017

The one-day workshop ‘Doing Architectural Research: socio-political perspectives on theories, methodologies & praxis’ will explore and question what constitutes architectural research, specifically research from socio-political perspectives. We are particularly interested in how we, as researchers concerned with architecture, overlap with and diverge from disciplines such as, planning, sociology, geography and anthropology, on questions of ethics, methods, theories and praxis. The workshop will be a forum for 28 PhD and early-career researchers to share their work, experiences and connect with others conducting research with an architectural grounding.
