The Urban Salon, a London-wide network exploring international and comparative urban issues, is pleased to welcome you to our next event. We will hear from four urban scholars whose work is embedded in different contexts (India, Colombia, Mexico and Indonesia).

Pushpa Arabindoo, Catalina Ortiz, Monika Streule and Lisa Tilley will bring together insights from scholarship and urban experiences from these contexts to explore the challenges and openings for decolonising urban studies. (How) can the terms of knowledge production in urban studies be transformed, to support the possibility of a decolonised and global urban studies?

Pushpa Arabindoo: Decolonising as an ‘ontological turn’: An ethnographic theorisation from Chennai

Monika Streule: Decolonialism is a practice

Catalina Ortiz: Mestizo Urbanism: decolonial insights for urban studies

Lisa Tilley: Speculative Wastelands and the Contradictions of ‘Use’ in Jakarta

Chair: Jennifer Robinson

You can read abstracts, biographies and a suggested reading list for those interested in exploring the subject further: http://bit.ly/2FmUupa

We look forward to seeing you at the event — no booking necessary. There will be an opportunity for informal discussion and networking following the panel.
