This workshop aims to bring together diverse presentations which explore physical circulations in and around the city. From everyday movements of urban residents to the more exceptional mobilities of migrants, we are interested in generating interdisciplinary conversations around mobility, circulation, and urban uncertainty. In particular, we are looking forward to highlighting the possible ways in which urban residents may respond to conditions of uncertainty through mobile practices, how issues such as security, emergency, and crisis may structure governmental agendas around managing urban mobilities, and how emerging mobilities and their governance may affect urban futures.
The Urban Uncertainty workshop series is an integral part of LSE Cities’ collaborative investigation into emerging ways of envisioning and governing the future of cities. Each session focuses on a different dimension of urban uncertainty, from health and housing to crime and climate, and brings together scholars from a handful of disciplines whose work converges on common themes.
