The Global City, Past and Present: Workshop 1: “Space”

University of St Andrews, Scotland, 14-15 May 2015

 Our first workshop will focus on the issue of “Space” in the early modern colonial city and its modern descendants.  At the intersection of empires, cultures, and economies, urban spaces and structures were, and continue to be, shaped by the cities’ global connections. Through an exploration of all aspects of the urban built environment, the workshop will start a conversation between scholars working on the spatial characteristics of those cities that first rose to prominence in the early modern imperial world.

The workshop will take place in the New Seminar Room in St John’s House on South Street.  You can find a map of St Andrews with the approximate location here.
