Monday Night Lectures, Term 1 2016-17

"Gentrification in the Global City: London in the age of crisis"
Lecture given by Dr Ollie Mould. Monday 21st November 5:30pm, Queens Lecture Theatre, Queen’s Building.


London is one of the world's global cities, but is experiencing a rampant housing crisis, homelessness and the loss of treasured cultural icons. All this is part of the process we call 'gentrification'. What this is though is difficult to define, and even more difficult to manage. This lecture explores London's current gentrification problem, and some of the people and groups that are resisting it.

For Booking enquiries please contact  - Emily.Foster@rhul.ac.uk

This Monday night lecture will discuss the relationship between geography and creativity and explore what effect creativity has on the world and our place within it.
