|WORKSHOP: 13-14 April 2012|
New interaction orders, new mobile publics?
Imagination Lab, LICA Building, Lancaster University, UK.
Most of this is ostensibly utterly trivial but the sum is not trivial at all. (Jacobs 1961, The Life and Death of Great American Cities, p. 73)
This workshop explores the emergence of 'mobile publics', inspired by Goffman's studies of public places as the performative locus of social orders and William Holly Whyte's investigations of the social life of small urban spaces. We bring theory and empirical research, everyday lived practice, design, policy and politics together through collaborative analysis of multi-sited, mobile, ethnographic or otherwise qualitative studies of behaviour in today's public spaces.
Organisers: Chris Boyko, Monika Büscher, Tim Dant, Jill Ebrey, Pauline Feron, Karenza Moore, Jen Southern, Katherine Willis
