CANCELLED - AHO Guest lecture series Spring 2022: Sophie Watson

Unfortunately, next week’s lecture with Sophie Watson is cancelled. We are very sorry for this, but AHO’s Videreutdanningsmaster i urbanisme / The Executive Master in Urbanism and OCULS: The Oslo Center for Urban and Landscape Studies are planning to postpone it to next semester. 
 
We hope to see you all there



Lecture title: City Water Matters
 
The lecture is organized by AHO’s Videreutdanningsmaster i urbanisme / The Executive Master in Urbanism and OCULS: The Oslo Center for Urban and Landscape Studies.
 

The lecture addresses the significance of water to everyday life in cities and look at a multiplicity of practices which often go unnoticed or barely remarked. Water in cities is as much about the passions of those that swim in its hidden places or sit by its fountains, as it is about the pipes that deliver it, or institutional interventions. Water is as much a cultural object as a material substance — a source of complex meanings and practices. Professor Sophie Watson explores different elements of water’s presence, as material object, cultural representation, as movement, as actor, as practice and as ritual.
