Urban integration and the nexus

urban-integration

I contributed to a panel at a research conference in Sheffield on 13th September, drawing together diverse perspectives on the chaotic and contested notion of urban integration. The panel was organised by Simon Marvin, Director of the Urban Institute, and pulled together researchers from across the Faculty of Social Sciences at Sheffield. I aimed to critically engage the ways ‘nexus’ fits into and is appropriated to imaginaries of urban integration.
