Jun/Jul 2022, Perth, Australia
This seminar focuses on examples of present and planned future peripheral centralities. It explores their meaning and function in a changing urban and suburban landscape. It aims to reappraise the suburbanisation processes and outcomes, and to inform how we theorize the urban/suburban in academic discourse. The seminar is a mix of face-to-face and online presentations and will be hosted at the University of Western Australia. It will have two keynote speakers; Roger Keil from York University, Canada, and Nicole Gurran from the University of Sydney. In addition to the keynotes, this seminar will also have an open invitation to professionals and academics in the field, and will be organised into themed sessions.
