Book Launch for Dr Susan Parham

MARKET PLACE: FOOD QUARTERS, DESIGN AND URBAN RENEWAL IN LONDON

11TH JUNE 2013 18.00-20.00PM

This event, at the THAI THEATRE, LOWER GROUND FLOOR, LONDON SCHOOL of ECONOMICS, NEW ACADEMIC BUILDING, LINCOLN'S INN FIELDS was very well attended.

Market Place book cover Are food quarters developing in London? If that's the case, are these no more than artful settings for people to play out a middle class 'habitus' based on distinction about food? Is food just another 'field' in London's relentless gentrification? Or are these places something more? Do new interconnections between physical design and socio-spatial practices in relation to food promise to offer cities greater conviviality and sustainability? Might they provide interesting models for foodinformed design and planning elsewhere? Susan with guests at the book launch

Market Place: Food Quarters, Design And Urban Renewal In London was launched on June 11th when Dr Susan Parham, Head of Urbanism at the University of Hertfordshire, discussed these issues with Tim Butler, Professor of Geography at University of King's College London along with Dr Fran Tonkiss, Reader in Sociology and Director the the LSE Cities programme, along with a keenly interested audience

Dr Fran Tonkiss presented at our last seminar entitled "Does it matter how the 'politics fo place' works?" on 20 June 2013. Link to the audio
