CURB: The Slow Violence of Displacement on London’s Gentrification Frontier

Wednesday 22 May 2019, 4.00PM to 5.00pm

Speaker(s): Phil Hubbard, Professor of Urban Studies, King's College London

Phil Hubbard is Professor of Urban Studies in King’s College, London. He is interested in the city as a site of social conflict. His work draws on theories of the city developed in urban geography and urban sociology, and also engages with debates in socio-legal studies, given his interests in the way urban 'disorder' is regulated. His work has set international agendas in the study of the relationship between gender, sexuality and the city, via research on the spatial governance of sex work. A major theme running through much of his work has been a focus on questions of displacement and spatial justice.
