The IHSS hosted its 2023 Annual Symposium on 21 and 22 September. The Symposium explored the theme of London’s Housing Crises and Global Capitalism, with guest speakers Raquel Rolnik (Professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the University of São Paulo) and Brenna Bhandar (Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia). Comprising five events, the Symposium drew on interdisciplinary perspectives on housing struggles and dispossession in London, exploring how London's unique urban challenges are embedded within global circuits of capital, the changing dynamics of financialisation and enduring colonial and racial regimes of property.
