URBAN RESISTANCES as Identity Politics in Cities Today

Public Panel Debate
Monday 10 March 2014, 17.00-19.00
Wallenstamsalen, Göteborg City Museum

Informal urban resistances, including everyday life insurgencies, protests, riots, and urban social movements, have become evident in Sweden and elsewhere. Looking at cities as spaces of power and indifference, six international scholars are invited to a public debate where they will critically rethink the “familiars” of cities, and attempt to make theoretical and political sense of these resistances. The debate is an introductory event to the 8th Conference of the Young Academics Network of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP-YA), “Cities that Talk”, 10-15 March 2014. The Urban Heritage Cluster of Critical Heritage Studies at the University of Gothenburg and Göteborg City Museum cohost the debate.
