The Pandemic City: Governing Urban Health & Disease (Workshop, London, 26 June 2013)

The Pandemic City: Governing Urban Health and Disease

This workshop examines concerns about health and illness and the role they play in shaping the governance of urban spaces, populations and bodies. Focusing on the intersection of technical projections and cultural imaginaries, it seeks to highlight how cities become objects of medical expertise and intervention and how urbanism serves as a resource for thinking about topics such as fitness and disease.

The Urban Uncertainty workshop series is an integral part of LSE Cities’ collaborative investigation into emerging ways of envisioning and governing the future of cities. Each session focuses on a different dimension of urban uncertainty, from health and housing to crime and climate, and brings together scholars from a handful of disciplines whose work converges on common themes.
