Bilbao and Liverpool: A Tale of Two Cities in Transformation

This event is on 8 March 2018 9:30am

The aim of this symposium is to compare and contrast the recent urban developments of Liverpool and Bilbao, two cities transformed by architecture and cultural industries.

Adopting a critical sociological lens, this comparison will focus on the role of flagship developments and cultural regeneration strategies in revitalizing the urban environment, transforming image and overturning cycles of decline — as well as the political and economic contexts, in each case, that gave rise to these strategies.

Speakers will include ICC Director, Dr Beatriz Garcia, as well as Dr Arantxa Rodríguez (University of the Basque Country), Prof Joseba Zulaika (University of Nevada) and Dr Paul Jones (University of Liverpool).

Further information on the symposium, including on how to register, can be found here.
