Attend a lecture in the Insights Public Lecture Programme.
Emeritus Professor Marion Roberts, University of Westminster
Thursday 1st March, 17:30-18:45
A resurgence of feminism at grass roots level in the UK has provoked renewed interest from a younger generation in the ideas and legacy of the movement to embed sensitivity to gender issues in town planning and urban design. This lecture will give examples of good practice from Europe and the global south, as well as the small local gains made in everyday practice.
Free admission, all seats are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. The aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate.
Many speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. The lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.
Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation.
