‘Internationalising Urban Higher Education’

September conference presentations now online

‘Internationalising Urban Higher Education’

In September, Dr Andrew Harris (UCL Geography) and Dr Ben Campkin (Bartlett School of Architecture) organized an international conference at UCL on the theme of ‘Internationalising Urban Higher Education’.

This was the culminating event of the Urban Lab+ network funded by the European Union’s Erasmus Mundus programme, involving eight urban laboratories from across the world including the UCL Urban Laboratory.

The conference brought together over 30 presenters to explore the challenges and potentials of internationalization in urban learning, teaching and knowledge production.

Recordings of many of the presentations are now available on the UCL Urban Lab soundcloud.

This includes a panel discussion featuring :

  • Professor Jenny Robinson from UCL Geography,
  • Professor Jane M. Jacobs (Yale-NUS College – and a UCL Geography PhD alumna),
  • Professor Caren Levy (UCL Development Planning Unit)
  • Kasama Yamtree (Community Architects Network).
