PSRG Network Meeting

December 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

PSRG logo

The Public Space Research Group serves as a networking hub connecting academics, practitioners, and students of public space from around the world. In addition to our monthly online seminars, we organized a special meeting to bring together partners, active in our network, to create a space for us all to share current research projects and exchange ideas around the study of public space. This meeting is the start of an effort to explore the potential of creating a network of public space research groups. The idea of this network is to develop a community of researchers, focused on social justice and public space, who can connect in ways that mutually support their research endeavors– for example collaborative data collection and/or analysis, publication feedback, or funding.

On December 1, 2022, eighteen scholars from eight countries met virtually to give short presentations of their current work and collaborative efforts. Below is a list of the participants with links to their affiliated institutes. Please check the Our Network page for more information about these and other PSRG network members.
