A two day conference exploring the shifting role of the street as discourse and real physical space in the context of contemporary culture and politics.
The aim of this conference is to rethink the street both in terms of its radical potential as site where dissent, critique and change can all be achieved whilst remaining critical as to the limits of such radicality. Where does the street lead us and what happens off the street? How might we avoid the dead ends and turf wars involved both in conceptualising and using the street? How might we set about building a new politics of the street?
Organised by the Centre for Cultural Studies with the generous support of the Departments of Media and Communications. Sociology, CUCR, PACE and the Graduate School, Goldsmiths.
All Welcome. Attendance is free. Visit: http://returntothestreet.eventbrite.com/ to register.
