Dr Yasminah Beebeejaun
Room 603
Central House
14 Upper Woburn Place
London
Appointment
  • Senior Lecturer
  • The Bartlett School of Planning
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
Biography

Yasminah’s background is in urban planning.  She completed her BA (Hons) in Town and Regional Planning (First class honours) and her PhD at the University of Sheffield.  Prior to joining UCL she held lecturerships at the University of Manchester and the University of the West of England, Bristol. She has been an international visiting scholar at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, University of Illinois, Chicago and the University of Michigan.

Research Summary

Her research focuses on three key themes:

  • The way in which representations of race, including national debates about identity, lead to the territorialisation of certain spaces as ethnic, and the impact that this has on modes and methods of community participation, and ultimately on urban regeneration and city development
  • The integration of different forms of knowledge in decision-making, and the opportunities that this creates for new ways of engaging with communities. This work engages with advocacy and community organising, investigating the coproduction of knowledge with communities.
  • An exploration of the creation of inequalities both within historical and contemporary debates about nationhood, colonialism, and postcolonial society in post-war Britain and North America
