'Eco-Urbanites': International Multidisciplinary Symposium in Comparative Urban Studies

'Eco-Urbanites': International Multidisciplinary Symposium in Comparative Urban Studies

Eco-Urbanites: International Multidisciplinary Symposium in Comparative Urban Studies.

This symposium brought together a range of experts who will approach the growth of the city through their own particular lens – as architects, urban geographers, sociologists and historians, linguists, policy-makers and engineers. Contemporary urbanism locates the study of the city within a social framework, where the nature of city living is scrutinised, and issues of justice, equity and well-being are at the heart of understanding what cities are and can become. In other words, despite the differences in scale, cities in Japan and Ireland are understood as spaces within which intense human interaction occurs, often fleeting yet always constant. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the Japan Foundation in the organisation of the Eco-Urbanites symposium. This event was the first in the series of activities to be held in Trinity College in 2017 which celebrate 60 years of diplomatic relations between Japan and Ireland.
