REVOLT IN THE SQUARE
SPATIAL MODELLING OF CONFLICT AND URBAN CONDITIONS
1 June 2018
University House
University of Leeds

The seminar is organised in the context of the “Revolt in the Square: Spatial Modeling of Urban Stability” research project funded by AHRC. Speakers will explore the way digital mapping and modelling of urban unrest can contribute to an understanding of protest movements and urban stability.

The symposium will unfold around three related themes:

1. Visualising urban protest and process
• Identifying methods and digital tools for movement visualisation
• Representing movements and processes of protests
• Patterns, geometries, intensities of urban (counter) flows

2. Narrating, recording and measuring conflict
• Proposing a vocabulary of visual models for political analysis
• Scales and indicators of conflict
• Sequences of conflict (de) - escalation

3. Policy implications of protest mapping
• Politics of mapping and disciplining protest
• From contestation to conflict and back
• Protests and public space design

The free event will consist of expert presentations on data visualisation, protest movements, urban design and mapping for advocacy.

We welcome attendees from: Policy making / Media / Graphic design / Data analysis / Architecture / Planning / Engineering /Research / Academia.

Registration is mandatory and places are limited.
