Zakład Socjologii Miasta i Wsi serdecznie zaprasza wszystkich zainteresowanych na otwarty wykład dra Siarheia Liubimau pt. "Politics of scale in urbanist action research".
Wykład odbędzie się 15.05.2019 roku w sali 234 Instytutu Socjologii Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego, ul. Koszarowa 3 o godz. 10.00. Po wystąpieniu prelegenta przewidujemy dyskusję na temat przedstawionych zagadnień:
This talk reflects author’s four years engagement in the Laboratory of Critical Urbanism (European Humanities University, Vilnius) ongoing participatory research, educational and soft planning projects in a mono-functional town of Visaginas, built in 1970s in Soviet Lithuania to serve Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (decommissioned in 2009). This LCU research, which started in 2014, is focused on Visaginas transformation after interruption of the INPP, and hence after town’s disconnection from ‘nuclear’ infrastructural network, centrally planned from Moscow and Leningrad. Since 2016 it is guided by the notion of ‘knowledge infrastructure’ and is realized in applied fashion of action research and educational workshops to elaborate new concept for Visaginas public library. Starting point of these research and workshops was observation that town’s public library both as institution and as infrastructure, planned in Soviet modernist fashion, requires re-tooling in new circumstances of digitalization, as well as of increasingly competitive multi-lateral and multi-scalar determination of town’s resources – jobs, human capital, institutions, built environment, etc.
