FLOW/ OVERFLOW/ SHORTAGE: MEASURING AND MANAGING EXTREME URBAN CONDITIONS
Online symposium: 24-25 May, 2023 (1pm-5:30pm CET).
With keynotes by Sylvy Jaglin (Laboratoire Techniques Territoires Sociétés) and Rashmi Sadana (George Mason University)
This symposium will explore the idea that overflow and shortage are increasingly pertinent infrastructural problems which usefully call attention to two widespread forms of urban extremes today. From droughts to stampedes, from data leaks to toxic spillages, we invite young scholars working on these infrastructural issues in different geographies to reflect on how the measurement and management of extreme flows shapes the contemporary urban condition.
