Peer talk sessions hosted by uLab with NURSS (New Urban Researchers' Seminar Series)
Urban Analytics and Interventions Research Lab has jointly hosted two peer talk sessions, with NURSS (New Urban Researchers' Seminar Series) in October and November. The peer talk aims to strengthen the academic exchange among PhD students.
We featured Víctor Cobs-Muñoz on Environmental justice and place: Creating a framework proposal to approach social-ecological Sacrifice Zones and Liudmila Slivinskaya on Reading Urban Form of Housing Estate through Place, respectively. Both are PhD students from TU Dortmund University. With backgrounds in Chile and Belarus, the two speakers carried their cultural roots into their research interests, which made the talks unique for Hong Kong-based doctoral researchers.
The academic exchanges are funded by the DAAD/RGC Joint Research Scheme (G-HKU703/20)
