Portrait of the City

Framing the significance of historic urban landscapes

Dublin Castle,  December 9th, 10th and 11th 2010
Deadline call for abstracts: May 15th 2010
Information: www.portrait-of-the-city.com

In December 2010 the School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering, University College Dublin and the Office of Public Works will host a multi-disciplinary international conference to explore the significance of cities, their constructed heritage, and the manner in which both the city and its heritage are framed for the public, the nation and the tourist. It will construct a portrait of the city as imagined, created, destroyed, manipulated and lived by its citizens.

The organisers invite scholars and students to this international conference to discuss the ways cities have set out to present themselves to both natives and newcomers. In order to elucidate these topics, we have invited international scholars from different fields as keynote speakers.
