Innovative workshop on 'Place Identity in and Evolving Space'
On 7 September 2023, I was finally able to organise a workshop on a topic very dear to me 'Place Identity in an evolving space'. The event was a great success and it will certainly be the starting point of a new broader research project.
This is the press report published by the University of Sheffield. For the full piece, see here.
On 7 September 2023, Dr Andrea Zappalaglio (Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law, University of Sheffield), in collaboration with Dr Enrico Bonadio (Reader in Law, City University of London), organised a ground-breaking workshop at the City Law School that brought together leading scholars from various disciplines within the realm of social sciences to explore the concepts of "sense of place" and “evolution of place” and their connection to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This innovative event was made possible through the generous support of the GO Fund grant, awarded by the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, one of the flagship research centres of the University of Sheffield.
The workshop, which marks a significant milestone in interdisciplinary research in this area of Social Sciences, aimed to examine the evolving nature of places and their role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The event fostered rich discussions and new perspectives on this complex issue with experts from diverse academic backgrounds such as law, sociology, anthropology, geography, history, economics and cultural heritage studies.
