How does creative-critical practice open up new ways to imagine and understand the complex geographies of the post-industrial urban West Midlands? My research will produce a substantial body of original poems drawn from field-work; review post-1960 West Midlands place poetry; examine the creative approaches used to highlight geographical themes; plus expand regional knowledge and understanding, using existing spatial theories and auto-ethnography.
The aim of the PhD in Urban Studies and Architecture is to critically approach the concept of temporary urbanism and look if there lies an opportunity for triggering urban change on indeterminate landscapes that have emerged as a result of economic decline, reconfiguration of industry or change of regime.]
