18 Oct Mapping Urban Unrest in Beirut Public Squares
25 – 27 / 10 / 2017
The seminar and workshop are organised in the context of the research project “Revolt in the Square: Spatial Modelling of Urban Stability” funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in UK (AHRC). The aim is to bring together academic and non-academic representatives from Universities, civil society, public authorities, research and geographical experts to explore and discuss the emergence of urban unrest in the Middle East as it unfolds on large public squares. The project focuses on a pilot study on Martyrs’ Square in Beirut and during the workshop, we aim to collect, map and visualize narratives of protests in 2015.
Please note that this is the second of two events.
This seminar and workshop will be held at the Faculty of Architecture Design and Built Environment, Beirut Arab University, Debbieh Campus. The first event will be held on the 23rd of October at the Faculty of Law, Political and Administrative Science, Lebanese University.
