Designing Urban Universities

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin

Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 June 2023

There is a growing dissonance between the urban university as often perceived—its physical, architectural, and emblematic form, its legacy structures and spaces, its time-honoured functions and traditions—and the university as a knowledge factory within the city, subject to political, commercial, and environmental pressures. But this is not a new dissonance. Architectural and design histories can uncover how, across diverse cases, it has often shaped the urban university internally and in its relationship with the city.

Julie Tanner
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 8, 2023

Lydia Davis is an award-winning author of nine short story collections, a novel, two volumes of essays, and a translator of Maurice Blanchot, Michael Leiris, Marcel Proust, and Gustave Flaubert. Beginning her career amidst the second wave of postmodernism, her very short stories - some only a paragraph or even a sentence long - have drawn comparisons with postmodern metafiction, literary minimalism, and LANGUAGE poetry. Her eclectic interests and unexpected manipulation of genre and form, however, frequently defy categorisation.
