urban | digital | visual : seeing the city in digital times | Public Talk with Gillian Rose at DIT

Thursday 15 November, 5.30.

Digital technologies of various kinds are now the means through which many cities are made visible and their places negotiated. From casual snaps shared on Instagram to elaborate photo-realistic visualisations, digital technologies for making, distributing and viewing cities are more and more pervasive. This talk will explore some of the implications of that digital mediation both for citizens of digitally-mediated cities and for critical academic scholarship.

Gillian Rose is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of the British Academy. She is the author of Feminism and Geography(Polity, 1993), Doing Family Photography(Ashgate, 2010) and Visual Methodologies (Sage, fourth edition 2016), as well as a many papers on images, visualising technologies and ways of seeing in urban, domestic and archival spaces. She is leading the ESRC-funded project Smart Cities in the Making: Learning from Milton Keynes; her particular interest is how digital visualisations of many kinds operationalise smart cities (SCiM-MK.org). She also curates the digital | visual | cultural series of events (dvcultural.org).
