Urban Pamphleteer
In the tradition of radical pamphleteering, Urban Pamphleteer confronts key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. The intention is to stimulate debate, and in the process empower and inform citizens, professionals, researchers, institutions, and policy-makers, with a view to positively shaping change. Urban Pamphleteer #1: Future & Smart Cities (April 2013), addresses recent ‘Future & Smart Cities’ discourse, asking 'What objectives and principles should shape this field beyond enthusiasm for technological progress for its own sake?'. Urban Pamphleteer #2: Regeneration Realities (December 2013), features analyses of regeneration, practical case studies and ideas that address questions such as "Is it possible to reclaim and rethink regeneration as a concept and set of practices?". Urban Pamphleteer #3: Design & Trust (September 2014), asks what the consequences are of prioritising defence and security as a first principle in design – an issue that has recently fired up the news agenda in public campaigns to remove ‘anti-homeless’ spikes and critiques of so-called ‘hostile architecture’ in public spaces. Urban Pamphleteer #4: Heritage & Renewal in Doha (November 2014), interrogates the contradictory ways that heritage features in the rapid contemporary redevelopment of Doha through the microcosm of its Al-Asmakh neighbourhood. Urban Pamphleteer #5: Global Education for Urban Futures (September 2015), aims to stimulate a critical discussion about the future of higher education focused on cities and urbanisation. Urban Pamphleteer #6: Open-source Housing Crisis (November 2016) interrogates new ways of approaching London’s rapidly escalating housing crisis, through open-source methods. Urban Pamphleteer #7: LGBTQ+ Night-time Spaces: Past, Present and Future (July 2018) gathers perspectives, provocations and vignettes on London's LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, with a focus on the different tactics being used to queer night-space. Urban Pamphleteer #8: Skateboardings (Spring 2020) brings together those who use their voices to push forward debate about the role of skateboarding in effecting urban and social change.
