DPU-UCL Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality Doctoral Training Course

This online short course has been developed by the Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality programme, led by Prof Caren Levy at the Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL.

It will run from 18-21 January 2021 and aims to:

  • Mobilise urban equality and epistemic justice as critical lenses for engaging with urban development challenges for a diversity of students from universities across the UK;
  • Provide the space for a critical discussion about the theory and practice of knowledge co-production; 
  • Generate a supportive co-learning environment for students to reflect on the current or potential contributions of knowledge co-production to their doctoral research; 
  • Contribute to the development of a UK Urban Learning Hub which brings together urban researchers who engage with issues of knowledge co-production and urban equality.

For further details about the course and to download the application form, please visit their website.
