This one-day workshop led by Professor Christoph Lindner is aimed at postgraduate researchers in the humanities and social sciences interested in the interrelations of visual culture, cities, globalization, and creative practice. The morning session will focus on recent scholarship on globalization, urban aesthetics, and creativity, and will ground the discussion in analysis of examples from film, photography, architecture, new media, and urban design. The afternoon session will address methodological issues in interdisciplinary cultural analysis, as well as practical strategies for collaborative research and publishing.
