A one day symposium organised by CUCR and the Tate Britain, Urban Encounters: Rethinking Landscape uses the lens of urban photography to bring together international researchers, academics, photographers and artists concerned with the nature of contemporary urban spaces and cultures. It is of particular relevance to those engaged with urban image-making, analysis and research. Speakers will address photographic interpretations of urban landscapes in relation to migration and change, place, identity and the cultural geographies of city life. The conference will facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue about the growing field of urban visual practice, method and enquiry.
